Gibson earns different man of the year nod

Former Arizona Cardinals offensive lineman Mike Gibson might not have a home for the 2014 season, but his work off the field is still being recognized.

Gibson was named a candidate for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Man of the Year award because of his work with his godson, Jared McDaniel, a 4-year-old who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at age 2. McDaniel was recently named the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Boy of the Year, giving him and Gibson the opportunity for the sweep.

In order to be named Man of the Year, Gibson has to raise the most funds from April 10 to June 19 in support of blood cancer research and cures.
