Just another award for Shady.

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has earned yet another honor to his already highly decorated collection. McCoy has been named the recipient of the 2014 John Wanamaker Athletic Award. As described by DiscoverPHL.com:

Since 1961, the John Wanamaker Athletic Award has been presented annually to the athlete, team or organization that has done the most to reflect credit upon Philadelphia and to the team or sport in which they excel.

McCoy was up against Claude Giroux (Philadelphia Flyers), Cliff Lee (Philadelphia Phillies), Danny Garcia (WBA/WBC Super Lightweight Champion), James Bell (Villanova University Basketball), Michael Carter-Williams (Philadelphia 76ers), Rondell White (West Chester University Football), Saint Joseph's University (Men's and Women's Basketball Teams), Sons of Ben (Philadelphia Union Supporters Group), and the University of Pennyslvania (Women's Basketball Team, Ivy League Champions).

McCoy made a statement upon receiving this honor. (Quote via Philly.com)

"I am humbled and appreciative to be named the John Wanamaker Award winner for 2014. It's an unbelievable honor to share an award that has been previously won by Doctor J [Julius Erving], Reggie White, Charles Barkley, Randall Cunningham, Bernard Hopkins and Mike Schmidt," McCoy said. "It is an amazing feeling. I want to thank my teammates, my coaches and the entire Eagles organization for believing in me and giving me an opportunity to play in this great city of Philadelphia."
