Eagles nominate assistant head coach Jemal Singleton for USAA Salute To Service Award

The Philadelphia Eagles named assistant head coach and running backs coach Jemal Singleton as the organization’s nominee for the “Salute to Service Award presented by USAA.”

The award, presented annually by USAA and the NFL, honors a league member who demonstrates an exemplary commitment to honoring and supporting the military community. USAA holds the designation of Official NFL Salute to Service Partner.

Singleton, the son of an Air Force Sergeant, followed in his father’s footsteps when he began his military career at the Air Force Academy. A three-year starter at running back for the Falcons, Singleton’s leadership led him to become one of only six players in program history to be named a team captain twice.

For the first time ever, fans can now vote for their favorite nominee, which will help determine the award’s three finalists.

To vote, fans can visit NFL.com/SaluteFanVote from now until November 30. One vote per day per fan is permitted.

Past recipients of the award include Andrew Beck (2022), Steve Cannon (2021), Dan Quinn (2020), Donnie Edwards (2019), Ben Garland (2018), Andre Roberts (2017), Dan Quinn (2016), Vincent Jackson (2015), Jared Allen (2014), John Harbaugh (2013), Charles Tillman (2012), and the late Tennessee Titans owner, K.S. “Bud” Adams, a WWII veteran (2011).

Finalists for the award are scheduled to be announced in January. The recipient will be recognized at the NFL Honors awards show, which will air during the Super Bowl festivities.
