2022 Courage Award Winner

Mike McGlinchey

2022 Ed Block Courage Award Winner

In a season with very high personal expectations after the 49ers elected to pick up McGlinchey’s fifth-year option, 2021 was supposed to be the year that Mike gets back to going through the entire season with injuries impacting his availability. Those goals would have to wait, as McGlinchey suffered a torn pec in Week nine and was subsequently placed on injured reserve. Through immense rehab and determination, McGlinchey made it back for 2022 better than ever, as he played in all 17 games for San Francisco and returned to being a patch of consistency on what many believe to be one of the premier offensive corps in the league.
