Antrel Rolle Wins 2013 “BBI Giant of the Year”: Safety Antrel Rolle has been voted “BBI Giant of the Year” for his performance in the 2013 NFL season. Rolle had his finest season as a New York Giant. He started all 16 games and finished with 98 tackles, 2 sacks, 12 pass defenses, 6 interceptions, and 1 forced fumble. Rolle also played in the 2013 Pro Bowl as a second-alternate.
Based on fan voting, the “BBI Giant of the Year” 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 and the award is presented at a ceremony on the practice fields during training camp.
The award carries a special significance as the trophy has been renamed to honor Hope Johnson, a beloved member of the BBI community and organizer of the “Giant of the Year” presentation, who died in 2009.
With 2,920 votes cast, Rolle received 64 percent of the vote followed by linebacker Jon Beason (16 percent), defensive end Justin Tuck (7 percent), Head Coach Tom Coughlin (4 percent), Defensive Coordinator Perry Fewell (4 percent), cornerback Prince Amukamara (3 percent), and place kicker Josh Brown (1 percent).
