Eagles Sheldon Brown is PSWA ‘Good Guy’ award-winner
Each year at its annual Award Dinner, the Philadelphia Sports Writers Association recognizes a local professional athlete with its Good Guy Award, and the 2009 winner is Eagles defensive back Sheldon Brown.
A second-round draft choice from South Carolina in 2002, Brown has played in all 112 regular-season Eagles’ games since his rookie 2002 season, and after most of those games has been readily available for interviews by reporters. His insights and sense of humor are appreciated by the large press corps which covers the Eagles, and especially his willingness to discuss a game, win or lose.
Sheldon Brown will be joining a star-studded head table for the Sports Writers Association’s Award Dinner on Monday, Jan. 26 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Route 70 in Cherry Hill, NJ.
Other major honorees include BRAD LIDGE (2008′s Outstanding Professional Athlete), ADAM TALIAFERRO (Humanitarian), BERNIE PARENT (Living Sports Legend), CHARLIE MANUEL (Phillies’ 2008 Team of the Year), West Chester and Frankford High School’s MIKE WASHINGTON (2008′s Outstanding Amateur Athlete), Navy’s SHUN WHITE (MVP of Army – Navy game), and recently retired NBA star and Philadelphia native CUTINO MOBLEY (Native Son). Also, NFL Films’ STEVE SABOL will receiver a Lifetime Achievement Award.
Also recognized on the dais will be former 76er Darryl Dawkins, Temple’s new women’s head basketball coach Tonya Cardozo, several Big Five coaches and athletes from several area colleges.
Tickets for the Award Dinner, which has been held continuously since 1904, are $75.00, and can be purchased by clicking here.
