FedEx Air & Ground Awards Celebrates 20 Seasons & Continues Support of HBCUs

The longest-running NFL sponsor-driven awards are back and better than ever. 

Entering its 20th season, the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Year Awards will once again recognize the top NFL quarterbacks and running backs during the season.

Each week of the 18-week regular season, three (3) quarterbacks and three (3) running backs will be nominated for the FedEx Air & Ground Players of the Week Awards, based on their performance. Weekly winners will be selected by fans, who have the chance to vote for the top quarterback and running back each week.

For the 2022-23 NFL regular season, FedEx is once again proudly working with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) to make donations of $2,000 in the name of the winning quarterback and running back ($4,000 total) to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) across the country. Over the course of the entire season, select HBCUs will receive grants totaling more than $100,000 to support needs-based scholarships through the 2023-2024 school year. 

Since 2003, the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Year Awards program has donated over 1 million dollars to various non-profits, charities, hospitals, and other humanitarian organizations.
