It’s been a terrific year for Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin. The fourth-year wideout from Ohio State received a lucrative three-year contract extension over the summer before training camp and is off to another terrific start.
Through 11 games, McLaurin has 50 receptions for 792 yards and two touchdowns. He is a team captain and one of the primary reasons Washington has won five of its last six games and 6-5 on the season.
Now, McLaurin is Washington’s nominee for the 2022 Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award given annually in recognition of outstanding sportsmanship on the playing field.
The award is named after legendary founding Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney, who is also a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
A panel of former players will choose eight finalists, who will then be listed on the Pro Bowl ballot. The winner is determined by a vote of the current players and receives a $25K donation to the charity of their choice. The winner will be announced at the NFL Honors event before the Super Bowl in February.
Congratulations to Terry McLaurin.
Here is the full list of nominees.
