Bryant Gumbel to Receive 2017 NFL Players Association Georgetown Lombardi Award
Emmy Award-winning television journalist and sportscaster Bryant Gumbel has been named this year's recipient of the NFL Players Association Georgetown Lombardi Award. Gumbel, who overcame two battles with cancer in 2009 and 2010, will be presented with the honor at the 31st Annual Lombardi Gala on Saturday, November 18 in Washington, D.C.
"I'm honored and humbled to be recognized by the Georgetown Lombardi Cancer Center," Gumbel said. "As a two-time cancer survivor, I'm acutely aware of how the disease impacts lives in so many ways. I am proud to join DeMaurice Smith in the NFLPA's ongoing support of such a great cause."
