Etienne and Patterson rewarded with honors


The accolades for Jacksonville Jaguars players this month keep pouring in. This month alone, we saw Safety Rayshawn Jenkins named AFC Defensive Player of the Week and quarterback Trevor Lawrence named AFC Offensive Player of the Week, in addition to being nominated for FedEx. Two-time aerial player of the week. This week, the team made franchise history when kicker Riley Patterson was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week. It is the first time that three Jaguars players have been named AFC Player of the Week in three different categories three weeks in a row.

This week we also saw Running Back Travis Etienne win the Ed Block Courage award. The winner is chosen by his teammates based on the player’s service to his community, his courage, his ability to overcome adversity and his inspiration. The Ed Block Courage Awards will take place in April 2023. It’s no surprise that it’s apparently awards season in Jacksonville. We have recently seen the team win more and do great things in the community. Maybe next week the team will win another AFC Player of the Week award after their game against the Houston Texans.
