The award was created in memory of former Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams, who passed away on Jan. 1, 2007, after completing his second season with the team. The award is given annually to the Bronco who best exemplifies Williams’ enthusiasm, cooperation and honesty while dealing with members of the press.
“DeMarcus was the clear winner this year,” said Jeff Legwold, president of the Pro Football Writers of America and Broncos beat writer for ESPN.com. “Those who named him as the winner cited his willingness not only to take the time, but to discuss a wide range of issues then offer comments of substance. Many of those who voted also noted Ware treated people with the kind of respect that is remembered long after the interviews have concluded.”
Ware, who is the 10th consecutive Broncos defensive player to win the local award, was a finalist for the NFL’s national Good Guy Award for the 2015 season.
Other Broncos receiving significant consideration for this year’s award were cornerback Chris Harris Jr., outside linebacker Von Miller and outside linebacker Shane Ray.
