)-- The America’s Team Award is a team sports award based on Honesty, Integrity, Sportsmanship, Achievement, and Teamwork. America’s Team believes that these are the qualities that today’s athletic youth need to witness in professional athletes in order to be positive examples themselves - in their sport, in the classroom and in their community.
The award acknowledges that the 2007-2008 New York Football Giants inspired many throughout the country during a season of adversity. Their team focus on promoting honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, achievement, and team work have earned them the America’s Team Awardsm.
“The performance of the New York Football Giants over the 2007-2008 season epitomizes the principals under which the America’s Team Award was founded” said Bryan Reichel CEO of America’s Team Charitable Foundation.
“The New York Football Giants are honored to receive the 2008 America’s Team Award. We truly appreciate the recognition of our team’s honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, achievement, and teamwork. Without everyone working together, the past year never would have been possible. We place much of our success on our values and are proud to represent the America’s Team Award.” Said Allison Stangeby, NY Giants Director of Community Relations
