Hoo legend and current Philadelphia Eagle Chris Long was announced this evening as the recipient of the 2018 NFLPA Byron “Whizzer” White Community MVP! Long made headlines this season by donating each of his game checks to charity, including six to fund scholarships in Charlottesville.

The award includes a $100,000 donation to a player’s foundation or charity of choice.

The other finalists for the award included Colin Kaepernick, J.J. Watt, Andy Dalton, and Von Miller. Long’s win also makes this the second year in a row a Philadelphia player has won the award, as safety Malcolm Jenkins took it home in 2017.

Congrats, Chris and Wahoowah!
