BRANDON MARSHALL AND DANNY TREVATHAN NAMED BRONCOS 2015 ED BLOCK COURAGE AWARD RECIPIENTS

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos have selected starting inside linebackers Brandon Marshall and Danny Trevathan as their 2015 Ed Block Courage Award winners, it was announced.

Each year, the Ed Block Courage Award honors players who exemplify commitments to the principles of sportsmanship and courage.

Marshall and Trevathan both overcame significant injuries that required surgery in the offseason and combined to start 31-of-32 possible games while finishing as the team’s top two leading tacklers in 2015.

Marshall, who underwent Lisfranc surgery following the 2014 season, opened all 16 regular-season games for the Broncos in the regular season and topped the 100-tackle mark (101) for the second consecutive year to rank second on the team in that category. He also added 1.5 sacks (10.5 yds.), nine tackles for a loss, one interception (0 yds.), four passes defensed and two forced fumbles.

Trevathan, who played only three games in 2014, had reconstructive surgery on his kneecap during the offseason. He returned this year to start 15 games and lead the Broncos with 110 tackles (74 solo) to go along with two interceptions (39 yds.) and six passes defensed.

The Ed Block Courage Award is named in honor of Ed Block, the longtime head athletic trainer of the Baltimore Colts, who was a pioneer in his profession and a respected humanitarian. Recipients are selected by their teammates for exceptional courage, great character and inspiring effort.

The 38th Ed Block Courage Awards recognizing recipients from each of the 32 NFL teams will be held at the Hilton Baltimore on March 12.
