Harrison Phillips named Bills' Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee

Phillips is very involved in the Western New York community

Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Harrison Phillips has been named the team's nominee for this year's NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, which recognizes a player for outstanding community service activities off the field, as well as excellence on the field. The award, first established in 1970, was renamed in 1999 after the late Hall of Fame Chicago Bears running back Walter Payton.

All 32 NFL nominees, one from each club, will receive a $40,000 donation in their name to their charity of choice. The winner of the award will receive a $250,000 donation to the charity of their choice.

All 2020 nominees will wear a Man of the Year helmet decal beginning Week 14 and continuing through the end of the season in recognition of their accomplishments on and off the field.

Phillips is very active in the Western New York community, including with his Playmakers Organization, supporting children with intellectual disabilities, as well as helping front line workers during the COVID-19 pandemic both in Western New York and his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska.
