Air Force safety Weston Steelhammer took the Pat Tillman Award on Friday night at the East-West Shrine Game banquet.
The award is presented at the college football all-star showcase to the “player who best exemplifies intelligence, sportsmanship, and service. The award celebrates a student athlete’s achievements and conduct on and off the football field.”
Steelhammer, who holds Air Force’s record with 18 interceptions, will add this to a list of accolades that includes AP third-team All-America, Lott IMPACT Trophy finalist, Jim Thorpe Award semifinalist, three first-team All-Mountain West selections and a slew of student-athlete awards dating back to high school when the valedictorian was a finalist for Louisiana’s High School Heisman and was one of five recipients nationally of the High School Scholar-Athlete awards given by the NFL and College Football Hall of Fame.
“Weston epitomizes everything this award is about,” Shrine Game executive director Harold Richardson said. “Through his service in the Air Force, he has demonstrated commitment, sacrifice, and dedication to our country. On and off the field, he has exhibited his outstanding character.”
