On Thursday, New York Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas was named the winner of the 13th annual George Young Good Guy Award, as voted on by the Professional Football Writers of America (Giants' chapter).
The award, which is named after late Giants General Manager George Young, is given to the player who demonstrates consistent cooperation and availability with members of the New York media over the course of an entire season.
Guard Kevin Boothe came in second in the voting, while cornerback Prince Amukamara finished third. In total, 10 players received votes.
Previous winners of the award include safety Antrel Rolle (2012), wide receiver Victor Cruz (2011), defensive tackle Barry Cofield (2010), defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka (2009), quarterback Eli Manning (2008), defensive end Justin Tuck (2007), wide receiver Plaxico Burress (2006), running back Tiki Barber (2005), quarterback Kurt Warner (2004), wide receiver Ike Hilliard (2003), quarterback Kerry Collins (2002) and offensive lineman Lomas Brown (2001).
Players can only win the award once in their Giants career, so all previous winners are ineligible to receive votes.
