2022 Courage Award Winner

Jaycee Horn

2022 Ed Block Courage Award Winner

The Panthers’ first-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft only played three games in his rookie season due to a foot fracture in Week 3 against the Houston Texans that required him to be put on Injured Reserve. Jayce through his grit and determination, battled back from his previous season’s foot injury and showed the world what he would have done, if he was healthy that entire 2021 season. The 2022 season saw Hon as once again, the starting cornerback for the Panthers, leading the team with three interceptions, and totaling 53 tackles and seven pass defensed in 13 games.
