Von Miller nominated for NFL's 2017 Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award

Hilton has been named the team's 2017 Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award nominee. He doesn't care if his number is called or not. "That makes the player he is engaging with feel good because they know he isn't just talking to them, but he is talking to himself too, saying Coach Mitchell wants me to do it better too".

All 32 National Football League teams nominate one player for the award, named for the late Steelers owner.

"Art Rooney is an iconic figure in NFL history", said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell at the time the award was introduced.

McCoy has met and exceeded all expectations of a player that personifies a true sport and one that never has any off-the-field or on-the-field issues, which explains why he has been a Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan favorite since he joined the team eight season ago.

According to a press release from NFL Communications, the award was created three years ago in honor of the late founding owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Hall of Famer Art Rooney Sr. It is one of several awards presented during the annual NFL Honors gala on the night before the Super Bowl.

A panel of former players - Warrick Dunn, Curtis Martin, Karl Mecklenburg and Leonard Wheeler - will select eight finalists from the list of 32 nominees, four from each conference.

Established in 2014, the award is relatively young.
