An online fan vote has awarded LeSean McCoy the NFL's FedEx Ground Player Of The Year Award. As part of the award, FedEx will donate $50,000 to a Delaware Valley area junior achievement program. Here's what they had to say about McCoy.

Philadelphia’s LE SEAN MC COY ran for a league-high 17 touchdowns in 2011 and was named the NFC’s starting running back in the 2012 Pro Bowl. His 1,309 rushing yards ranked fourth in the NFL. He averaged 4.8 yards per attempt, and led the NFL with 84 runs for a first down. His 17 rushing touchdowns (and 20 overall) broke Eagles’ records that had stood since 1945. McCoy rushed for a season-high 185 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles’ Week 8 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. McCoy was nominated four times for FedEx Ground Player of the Week honors, winning twice.

Drew Brees was named the "Air Player Of The Year." McCoy beat out Ray Rice and Maurice Jones-Drew for the award.
