PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro defensive tackle Cameron Heyward has been selected as the 2022 Good Guy Award winner by the Professional Football Writers of America.
Heyward, the 18th Good Guy Award winner, is the second member of the Steelers franchise to get the award, joining Jerome Bettis, who won the inaugural honor in 2005. The award is given to an NFL player for his qualities and professional style in helping pro football writers do their jobs.
Heyward did not miss a media availability during the 2021 season, and those who covered the Steelers noted he doesn't avoid answering tough questions. He was cited for consistently going "above and beyond" to build an honest rapport with those who cover the team.
