Fletcher A Finalist For ‘Bart Starr Award’

Athletes in Action has  announced Redskins linebacker London Fletcher as one of the three finalists for the 2012 Bart Starr Award, which recognizes one NFL player for outstanding character and leadership in the home, on the field and in the community.

The winner will be honored during the 25th Annual NFL-Sanctioned Super Bowl Breakfast, presented by Bob and Kathy Andersen and Companies with a Mission, on Saturday February 4, 2012, at 8:00 a.m. EST at the Exposition Hall of the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis (1202 East 38th Street).

The Bart Starr Award, given away at the Super Bowl Breakfast, honors Starr’s lifelong commitment to serving as a positive role model to his family, teammates and community. The winner of the Bart Starr Award is determined by NFL player balloting at the end of the regular season, making the award one of only two individual honors selected by the players themselves.

Here’s a promo video for the Super Bowl breakfast:

Ironically, all three finalists hail from the NFC East this season, as Fletcher is competing against Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and Cowboys tight end Jason Witten.

The last Redskins player to be honored with the award, was cornerback Darrell Green, who had a similarly profound leadership on the Redskins team and community that Fletcher has had during his time with the team.

Fletcher’s community service work is primarily channeled through his personal non-profit charity, “London’s Bridge,” which is focused on educating children on to live healthy, productive lives.  Check out the video below:

The winner of the Bart Starr Award is voted by NFL players and is named after NFL Hall of Famer Bart Starr.  Congratulations to London, and here’s hoping he get’s some much-deserved recognition.
