NFL Sportsmanship Award Will Honor Art Rooney Sr.

NFL Sportsmanship Award Will Honor Art Rooney Sr.
BY JED HUGHES
VICE CHAIRMAN & HEAD OF GLOBAL SPORTS, KORN FERRY
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Few individuals contributed more to the development and long-term success of the National Football League than Art Rooney Sr., who purchased the Pittsburgh Steelers franchise in 1933 for $2,500 and owned the team until he died in 1988.

Known as “The Chief,” Mr. Rooney was instrumental in the league’s expansion. In 1964, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame for bringing a team to the Steel City and helping to create the world's most successful sports league.

In his day, "The Chief" was an incredible athlete. He won the AAU welterweight title and was good enough to try to make the 1920 U.S. Olympic boxing team. He also was a runner, played minor league baseball, and was a halfback for two different semi-pro football teams in Pittsburgh before buying the Steelers.
