Former Viking & Gopher Jack Brewer to Receive Humanitarian Award


Former Vikings and Golden Gophers safety Jack Brewer will be honored with the Steinberg DeNicola Humanitarian Award at Leigh Steinberg's 29th Annual Super Bowl Party on Saturday in San Francisco, on the eve of Super Bowl 50.

According to a press release, the Steinberg DeNicola Humanitarian Award recognizes "outstanding individuals in the NFL community that devote and dedicate their time to address community issues and the welfare of humanity." This is the second year that awards have been distributed at the party.

Brewer, Founder and CEO of The Brewer Group, started the Jack Brewer Foundation in 2006, where he's worked to use sport "as a catalyst to provide resources and opportunities to the world's most underserved populations."

Brewer's work has included visits by his Global Ambassadors Tour to Haiti, Guatemala, Malawi and Egypt.

"To be able to raise awareness on issues like education for athletes, brain health and traumatic brain injuries and extreme poverty on such a platform is an honor," Brewer said. "I am committed to empowering athletes to empower themselves as well as the communities around them. I want to thank Leigh Steinberg and his team for the recognition and support of my work."
