    I think he has won it before.
    I didn't look for the past award winners.
    Here's a short spiel about the award and the other winners around the league.

    Apparently he hasn't won it. I just found this list of past winners

    And Koren Robinson won in 2005

    I beg to differ with you. Yes he has won it.

    I'm sorry I think I wasn't clear. We were talking about if he had won it before, or if it was his first time getting it.

    I see now. Your post that stated "Apparently he hasn't won it" threw me off.

    He hasn't won it before but he was named the "Vikings Man of the Year" in 2004 for his work in the Twin Cities community.
