The John Wooten Leadership Awards are presented annually to the NFL player, executive and personality whose play, community and extracurricular activities best exemplify the leadership and vision of John Wooten, whose NFL career has spanned over 50 years as a player and front office executive. Affectionately known as the “Godfather”, Wooten’s level of influence knows no bounds and his blessings and endorsement can build a career. Commissioners, general managers and head coaches seek his advice and to gain his counsel is the key to gaining knowledge and insight that is virtually unparalleled in the NFL. As Chairman of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, John has been a major instrument behind the successful movement for diversity in the NFL.
