Browns TE Ben Watson Finishes as a Finalist for Byron "Whizzer" White Award

Karl Walter

Cleveland Browns tight end Ben Watson, through his affiliation to the NFLPA, was one of five finalists for the Byron "Whizzer" White Award, as announced a week ago. The award recognizes a player based on community service performed in the player's team cities or hometowns.

The winner was announced today, and the award was given to Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch. The Browns might have beaten Batch in the regular season, but he wins this time around, picking up $100,000 in charity for the Batch Foundation. Watson doesn't go away empty-handed, though, as he, along with the other finalists, also received a donation for their charities as well. Congrats to Watson for being a finalist!

Also, I would like to remind people that Browns left tackle Joe Thomas is one of three finalists for the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. If Thomas is named the winner, he will receive an additional $20,000 for his charity. The winner will be announced at the 2nd Annual NFL Honors show on February 2nd, from 9:00 PM to 11:00 PM ET on CBS.
