Description
"Chris has done a remarkable job of leveraging his platform as a professional athlete to create life-changing opportunities for so many people,"

A prestigious honor, the Walter Payton award recognizes an NFL player for outstanding community service activities off the field, as well as excellence on the field.

"Chris Long is one of the finest individuals that I have encountered during my 25 years in the National Football League,” said Eagles Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie. "Chris’ on-field contributions and his presence in the locker room were instrumental in our success over the last two seasons and I will always be grateful for the role he played in bringing the city of Philadelphia its first Super Bowl championship. Chris has also displayed remarkable stewardship off the field, both locally and globally. He is a model citizen and leader, and he is someone that we can all look up to and learn a great deal from. I admire the work that he has done throughout his career to help source clean water in East Africa, create educational equity programs and provide support to military veterans. Civic responsibility is one of our organization’s core values, and in my eyes, Chris has lived up to and exceeded the high standards of what it means to be a Philadelphia Eagle. There is no one more deserving of this award."
