DENVER - Former Wolf Pack linebacker Brandon Marshall has been named the winner of the 2015 Denver Broncos Good Guy award.
It means that Marshall will be a candidate for the Pro Football Writers Association national award, which will be handed out after the season.
The award honors the NFL player who best cooperates with the media. The only Broncos player to ever win the national honor was Tim Tebow back in 2012.
"To me, it means a lot. I was raised on integrity," Marshall told the Denver Post. "For all of my peers to see me as this person and say, 'OK, he's a really great person.' My mom did a (heck) of a job in raising me. I know she'll be proud of this because she'll know that she raised her boy in a way that people look up to him and a way that people respect him. It means a lot to me in that regard because I know that I've done a good job in trying to become the best man that I can be. I'm not perfect, nobody is, but still striving to be a great person each day."
Marshall leads the Broncos in tackles this season with 101 total tackles. He also has 1.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception.
