Thomas Davis Is Panthers Man of the Year Nominee
Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Linebacker Thomas Davis is the Panthers’ nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award, given annually to recognize an NFL player for his work on and off the field. Davis, also in the running for the NFL Comeback Player of the Year award, began the Thomas Davis Defending Dreams Foundation during 2007. The foundation distributes more than $50,000 in aid to underprivileged children and families each year. “To receive the award on this team, you have to be voted on by your teammates, and it’s definitely a huge honor,” said Davis, who is in his eighth NFL season. “I think they recognize all the work we do in the community with my foundation, and this is not the reason we do it. We do it because we want to make a difference and impact the lives of the children we’re working with.”
