FedEx Kicks Off 10th Season Of NFL Air & Ground Awards, Celebrates Long-Standing Relationship With Junior Achievement

As the 2012 NFL season begins and fans gather to support their favorite teams, FedEx Corporation (NYSE: FDX), a leader in transportation services and business solutions, kicks off its 10 th annual FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week program. The decade-long awards program highlights the week’s best performances by NFL quarterbacks and running backs, while continuing its long-standing relationship with Junior Achievement USA—a non-profit organization that brings the real world to students through hands-on curriculum, delivered by trained classroom volunteers.

Each week during the regular football season, six nominees will represent the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week—three Air and three Ground nominees. Every Tuesday through Friday at 3 p.m. ET, fans may visit NFL.com/FedEx to cast votes for their favorite players nominated that week. FedEx and the NFL will announce the winners every Friday and award a $2,000 donation in each player’s name to their local area office of Junior Achievement.

This year, NFL Hall of Famer and Emmy Award-winning FOX sports analyst Howie Long will serve as the voice behind the awards. “I’m proud to be a part of the FedEx Air & Ground program, which not only honors the league’s most talented players, but also recognizes the need to nurture today’s young minds,” said Long. “As a former player, it’s great to see fan interaction contributing to such a worthwhile cause, because their votes make a difference in the community.”

Air & Ground Players of the Year Recognition

Fans will also be given the opportunity to name the 2012 FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Year, by voting for their favorite quarterback and running back during a two-week long voting period in January 2013. The winners of the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Year will be announced the week leading up to Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans. In addition, FedEx will donate $25,000 in each of the winner’s names to their local area offices of Junior Achievement. Last year, New Orleans Saints’ quarterback Drew Brees was named the FedEx Air NFL Player of Year, while Philadelphia Eagles’ running back LeSean McCoy was named the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Year.
