On occasions when the chapter feels it is worthy, we honor an individual who participates in the great game of football with our Tom Potter Memorial Award of Courage. This award is presented to a person who has overcome great obstacles in his life.

The award is appropriately named the Tom Potter Memorial Award of Courage. Our fellow board member and dear friend, Tom, lived each day of his life with a great deal of courage while possessing an overwhelming devotion and commitment to young people. He truly represented the mission and beliefs of the Greater Cincinnati Chapter of the National Football Foundation.
