UNDATED — Recently retired Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long has won his second consecutive “Good Guy Award” from the Professional Football Writers of America.
Long is the 15th winner of the award and the first player to earn it in consecutive years.
He announced his retirement last month, ending an 11-year NFL playing career that included winning two Super Bowl titles and the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.
He established the Chris Long Foundation in 2015 to impact communities nationally and internationally through programs focusing on clean water, military appreciation and youth education. In 2017, Long donated his entire salary to support education in cities where he has played: St. Louis, Boston and Philadelphia.
