Through his determination and hard work, Shazier’s progress has taken him from once questionable to walk, to dancing at his very own wedding. Though inspiring many who have followed him, Shazier can now add some hardware to his comeback story. The PFWA announced today Shazier would be the recipient of the 2019 George Halas Award, which is given to a NFL player, coach or staff member who overcomes the most adversity to succeed. Mention Steelers Now and save $10! Shazier becomes the first member of the Steelers organization to take home the award since 1985, when John Stallworth received it. Rocky Blier is the only other Steeler to be awarded the George Halas Award, winning it in 1975. James Conner was a finalist alongside Shazier for the award as well. As Shazier continues to work towards getting back to the football field, the award given by the PWFA serves as a landmark for how far Shazier has come. Shazier will not be playing football in 2019, as he was placed on the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) list. 2.3Kshares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment Email Related Topics:2019featuredGeorge Halas AwardPFWAPittsburgh SteelersRyan Shazier Up Next Steelers Announce Schedule for 2019 Training Camp Don't Miss Steelers Sign Justin Layne, Last of 2019 Draft Picks to Ink Contract Donnie Druin Continue Reading Advertisement You may like Steelers Sights and Sounds: Home Turf Exclusive with former Steelers QB Landry Jones Steelers Roster Projection after Preseason Week 2 Poll: Who Should Be Steelers Backup Quarterback?
