2022 Courage Award Winner

Brian Robinson

2022 Ed Block Courage Award Winner

Three and a half weeks before The Commanders’ season opener against Jacksonville, Brian was shot in the knee and glute during an armed robbery involving two men after leaving a restaurant in the nation’s capital. Through intense rehab and determination, Brian would make it back onto the field almost eight weeks later as the Commanders’ lead back in their Week 5 matchup against Tennessee. This is why Brian Robinson was selected by his teammates as the Washington Commanders Courage Award Recipient for 2022.
