After all, The former Walter Payton Man of the Year award winner and two-time Super Bowl Champ had one of the better on-field/off-the-field personalities for a pro football player.
Now, he can add a second 'Good Guy' award to his trophy cabinet.
Recently retired defensive end Chris Long won his second consecutive “Good Guy Award” from the Professional Football Writers of America. Long is the first player ever to earn it in consecutive years! pic.twitter.com/lbK7usf4n5— Eagles Nation (@PHLEaglesNation) June 5, 2019
The 'Good Guy Award' is described by the Pro Football Writers Association as an award given to players who act professional and demonstrate good qualities that help those journalists do their job adequately throughout the season.
It's the second consecutive year Long has won the award.
Long is also quite charitable, establishing a foundation and even donating a year's salary to help support education for those who were in a lesser position to receive it.
He's a good guy to the media and to the people, what more can you ask for out of a professional athlete?
