Fans congratulate Luke Kuechly on NFL sportsmanship award

Although the Carolina Panthers didn't make it the Super Bowl, they did get a win over the weekend during an awards ceremony.

During the NFL Honors Show Saturday, ahead of championship night, Linebacker Luke Kuechly won the 2017 Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award. There were 32 nominees from teams nationwide.

"I think that says a lot about his character, you, he's a great guy on and off the field," said one fan. 

Not only did he take home a trophy, Kuechly also gets a $25,000 check from the NFL foundation that will go to a charity of his choice.
