EACH WON THE BART STARR AWARD

The prestigious Bart Starr Award was created to honor the NFL player who best exemplifies outstanding character and leadership in the home, on the field, and in the community. The Award is presented by Athletes in Action during the NFL-sanctioned Super Bowl Breakfast.

Named after NFL Hall of Fame inductee Bart Starr, this award has been handed out each year since 1989 to a winner voted on by his NFL peers. These winners represent a continuation of Bart Starr’s legacy in serving as a positive role model to family, teammates, and the community.

“Using the influence and platform of sport so that everyone knows someone who truly follows Jesus”

To make the most of their influence NFL players must build their lives on a solid foundation – a foundation that doesn’t change with their season record, their contract, or their public image. 

The NFL Ministry of Athletes in Action serves players, coaches, alumni, executives and their families to help them grow in their relationship with God, so they have a solid foundation for their leadership in their family, team, and community.

All influencers have individuals who have mentored them along their journeys. Will you help us influence the influencers of sports through a financial gift?

Your partnership with Athletes in Action makes it possible to provide the mentorship, chapel services, small group bible studies, and individual discipleship that athletes need to grow as influencers for Christ. By serving more than 60 countries, on over 200 college campuses, in 50 professional sports teams, we’re thrilled to link arms with faithful believers like you in order to raise up Christ-followers on every team, in every sport, in every nation.

Thank you for helping us influence the influencers who make a positive change in this world!
