Saints FB Heath Evans Named 2010 Ed Block Courage Award Winner

Congratulations to Heath! A player from each NFL team is honored for his commitment to the principles of courage and sportsmanship while serving as an inspiration in his locker room and community. Outside of Drew Brees, I don't know of another player on the Saints' roster who is more deserving of this award. Heath's dedication to helping sexually abused children is a noble effort most of us are very aware of and few Saints players provide the same high level of locker room leadership.

Here is a link to more information on the award:

Evans, a 10th-year player, returned to the field this summer after suffering a season-ending ACL tear in his right knee in October 2009. He showed determination and dedication in his rehab and was on the field when the team opened training camp.
 
He played in all 16 games this season, capping his comeback by catching a touchdown pass in his home state of Florida in the team’s 31-6 win at Tampa Bay.

Evans is hosting his third annual celebrity softball game in Jupiter, Fla., tonight to benefit the Heath Evans Foundation, which aides victims of childhood sexual abuse.
