Asomugha named finalist for Bart Starr Award

The Philadelphia Eagles today announced that CB Nnamdi Asomugha has been named a finalist for the 2012 Bart Starr Award, which honors the NFL player that best exemplifies outstanding character and leadership in the home, on the field and in the community. The other finalists this year are Jason Witten and London Fletcher. The award will be handed out at the 2012 Super Bowl Breakfast on February 4 in Indianapolis.

Asomugha and his family formed The Asomugha Foundation in 2005 to have a positive impact on disadvantaged youth in the United States and the underprivileged orphans and widows in Africa through education and empowerment. The foundation comprises two primary programs - the Asomugha College Tour for Scholars (ACTS) and Orphans and Widows in Need (OWIN). ACTS is an annual college tour and mentoring program that provides high-achieving high school college students with the opportunity to visit college campuses across the country. OWIN provides aid to a growing population of widows and orphans in Africa and positions them for economic success and independence through education, spiritual guidance and vocational training.
