Ahmad Bradshaw Receives BBI “Giant of the Year” Trophy: Before the Giants-Colts preseason game on Sunday night, former Giants’ running back Ahmad Bradshaw received the 2012 BigBlueInteractive.com (BBI) “Giant of the Year” Trophy.
Based on fan voting, the award is given to the Giants’ player, coach, or member of the front office who most contributed to the team’s success on the field in a given year. The vote is held at the end of each season by members of the BBI community.
BBI owner and senior editor Eric Kennedy presented the award to Bradshaw. Kennedy said that Giants’ fans not only recognized that Bradshaw had his second best season in 2012, but they wanted to thank him for six great seasons in which Bradshaw not only became the sixth-leading rusher in team history, but also a major factor in the Giants winning two NFL Championships. Kennedy also mentioned that fans recognized Bradshaw’s passion for the game and the tremendous amount of toughness he played with. Kennedy finished by saying that Giants’ fans will miss him, but will always consider him a New York Giant.
“I couldn’t give anything back but my passion for the game,” said Bradshaw at the ceremony. “The hard work and everything’s paid off to give me my accomplishments here today. Just the love for this game is what’s in me. Like I say, you guys don’t do anything but push me harder and push me to be even better and to work even harder for what I’ve done.”
