This season marked the fifth year of the charity challenge, designed as a way for fans to promote their favorite team's nominee. Votes were counted by tweets, with the hashtag #WPMOYChallenge + [insert nominee name]. 

By finishing second, Sundberg is given a $10,000 donation to the charity of his choice. 

The long snapper was named the Redskins nominee because of the tremendous charitable work Sundberg has done in the community through the Redskins Loads of Love campaign. The campaign was launched jointly by Sundberg and the Redskins charitable foundation in 2017 as a way to insert laundry machines in local schools, directly impacting the homeless and those in an unstable living situation.

The winner of the Walter Payton Man of the Year award will be announced on Saturday, February 1 at the NFL Honors.
