As part of Pop Warner's National Awards and All-American Scholar Banquet at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, Saturday, former Packers wide receiver Antonio Freeman was awarded the Pop Warner Humanitarian Award.
The Pop Warner Humanitarian Award is an award that was presented for the first time in 2005 (Arizona Cardinals WR, Larry Fitzgerald) and is given to an individual who has portrayed both outstanding athletic achievement and high humanitarian principles while serving as an inspiration to the youth of today.
Freeman was honored for his constant work for charities including his work on behalf of Big Brothers Big Sisters, the March of Dimes and "Coats for Kids."
