BRONCOS CB CHAMP BAILEY TO BE RECOGNIZED BY THE ATLANTA AREA COUNCIL OF THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey will receive the “Professional Award” from the Atlanta Area Council of the Boy Scots of America at the organization’s 2013 Role Model Banquet on March 26 at the Cobb Energy Centre in Atlanta, it was announced.

The Professional Award is presented annually to a well-known, successful professional athlete who exemplifies qualities of responsible citizenship and outstanding character. Previous recipients of the honor include NFL players Calvin Johnson, Brian Jordan,Brad Johnson, Archie Griffin, Ray Buchanan, Terance Mathis, Warrick Dunn and Herschel Walker.

Bailey is a two-time nominee for the Broncos’ Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award (2008-09), given to the player who best provides leadership for his teammates on the gridiron and his fellow citizens in the community. He adopted the Denver Rescue Mission’s Denver Broncos Youth Center at The Crossing and has spent the last several years making monthly visits to the center to participate in activities and meet and inspire young people living at The Crossing. He also developed “Champ’s Volunteers,” a youth volunteer recruitment program benefitting the Denver Rescue Mission.

The veteran wrapped up his 14th NFL season in 2012, earning his 12th career Pro Bowl selection to represent the most by a defensive back in league history and tie teammate Peyton Manning for the most among active NFL players.

A multi-sport athlete at Charlton County High School in Folkston, Ga., during his youth, Bailey went on to star at the University of Georgia, where he won the 1998 Bronko Nagurski Award as the nation’s top defensive player while earning consensus All-America honors as a senior.

The Role Model Banquet honors outstanding “Role Models for Youth” in athletics, academics, community service and Scouting. This year’s banquet is sponsored by select groups of businesses and friends of Scouting in the community. Table and ticket proceeds go to fund Scouting programs in the Council’s 13-county area including Learning for Life, an in-school character education program, and Scoutreach.

The banquet will be held under the leadership of an outstanding committee composed of representatives from the corporate and business community, media and sports networks, and educational institutions.
