“All you guys do on and off the field is truly remarkable,” the prince said in a brief speech. “You are role models for millions in the way you carry yourselves and the way you give back. This final award — the highest honor — is all about serving your community. And there’s one special man we’d like to pay tribute to now. A player who goes above and beyond and whose extraordinary commitment to helping others is a reflection of his own story.”
