Since 1996, the Disney Spirit Award has been presented annually to college football’s most inspirational student-athlete, team, coach, fan or figure who has overcome extraordinary physical or emotional hardships or other challenges, while exhibiting a selfless nature and good sportsmanship.
The 2018 Disney Spirit Award will be presented Thursday, Dec. 6th in Atlanta during the College Football Awards at the College Football Hall of Fame.
Last year, the University of Iowa football program earned the award for starting the Kinnick Wave, where more than 70,000 fans stand and wave to the young cancer patients at the University of Iowa’s Stead Family Children’s Hospital that sits next door to the stadium.
Some of the other winners of the award include James Conner (University of Pittsburgh) in 2016, Hank Goff (Concordia University) in 2015, Sterling Shepard and Bob Stoops (University of Oklahoma) in 2014 and Devon Walker (Tulane University) in 2013.
Nominations for the 2018 Disney Spirit Award may be submitted via e-mail to Reginald.D.Roberts@Disney.com from now until Friday, Nov. 9.
