Allen Robinson wins the Ed Block Courage Award

New, comments

For the second time in his NFL career, Allen Robinson is the recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award. His first win came as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2015, and he’s now the 2019 winner as a member of the Chicago Bears.

Robinson has been an active member of the Chicago community since signing with the Bears in 2018. His Within Reach Foundation, which he started while a member of the Jags, provides educational opportunities and resources to low-income and inner-city Chicago students to help put success within their reach.

He was also the Bears nominee for the 2019 Walter Payton NFL Man Of The Year Award.

Robinson only has one more year remaining on his Bears’ contract, and he’s been exceptional both on and off the field for the franchise, which is why he should be a Bear for life.
