Jets QB Tim Tebow won the Professional Football Writers of America Good Guy Award.
The PFWA gives out the award to a player for his “qualities and professional style in helping pro football writers do their jobs.” One of the most popular players in the game, Tebow helped turn around the Broncos last season and led them to a shocking playoff win over the Steelers.
The Broncos traded Tebow to the Jets in March.
“I think Tim handled himself well all season long with the kind of attention few players are asked to contend with at any point in their careers,” said Jeff Legwold of the Denver Post. “Tim not only dealt with the traditional media obligations both locally and nationally, but he was also the focus of many non-traditional media outlets, both from in Denver and across the country. And while he didn’t always let folks peer into his innermost thoughts, he did always conduct himself professionally, with a great deal of respect for both the process and the people who take part in it.”
