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 passed away in 2009.

BBI owner and editor Eric Kennedy presented the award to Rolle. Kennedy highlighted Rolle’s on-field production in 2013, but also remarked about Rolle’s maturation into a team leader during his four seasons with the Giants. He also mentioned that Rolle is the first defensive player to win the award.

“I am extremely honored, I am overly ecstatic,” said Rolle. “I am fully aware of the site BBI, my family is. And I’m not too crazy about blogs, you have to a little on the edgy side. We thank you on behalf myself and the New York Giants for being such a great supporter… Win, lose, or draw, we know you guys are always there.”

“The best is yet to come,” said Rolle. “We are looking forward to a lot of great things this year… I am extremely excited about this year, extremely excited about your site.”
