Pat Tillman/Ryan McGhee Defensive Player of the Year

In 2004 we renamed the defensive player of the year award to honor Pat Tillman. For more information on Pat Tillman
and the Pat Tillman foundation, click
here.

Posthumously…
"I am heartbroken today by the news of Pat Tillman's death, " Arizona Senator John McCain said. "The tragic loss of this
extraordinary young man will seem a heavy blow to our nation's morale, as it is surely a grievous injury to his loved
ones." McCain also stated, “While many of us will be blessed to live a longer life, few of us will ever live a better one.”

Pat Tillman’s courage and valor have led to posthumous awards of the military’s Silver Star and Purple Heart medals, as
well as a promotion in rank from Specialist to Corporal. While the story of Pat’s death may have been the most
publicized in the War on Terror, sadly, it is merely one of the thousands of tragic stories that deserve recognition.
As Steve White, Navy SEAL and family friend stated, “1976-2004…that one little dash in there represents a lifetime. How
do we spend our dash?”  Pat’s ‘dash’ was something we should all aspire to…Pat’s family and friends started the Pat
Tillman Foundation to carry forward his legacy.In 2009 we lost one of our own, Ryan Casey McGhee.   As a Ranger,
Corporal Ryan Casey McGhee distinguished himself as a member of the Army’s premier light-infantry unit, traveled to all
corners of the world in support of the Global War on Terrorism, and fought valiantly to “uphold the prestige, honor, and
high ‘esprit de corps’” of the Ranger Regiment. As a man, he distinguished himself everyday with his kindness, love and
caring for  others.  Ryan will be missed, but never forgotten.
