Linebacker Adam Hayward named the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Man of the Year

Linebacker Adam Hayward was named the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Man of the Year, an award that was presented to him Wednesday.

Hayward is involved in many charitable endeavors in the Tampa Bay community, including breast cancer awareness. He is deeply involved in the Susan G. Komen organization

The 26-year-old Hayward is eligible for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award.

"Honestly, it's an honor to be recognized for the things you do off the field because there's so many negative things that players are getting into and creating a bad image,'' Hayward said. "It's just an honor to be recognized as one of the positive role models, because we are role models to little kids and to even grown adults. Just to be out there doing the right thing in the community means you are doing something and people are paying attention.''
