Greg Olsen was nominated for the NFL's Walter Peyton Man of the Year Award, which honors a player for excellence on and off the field.
As the time to vote on Twitter has wound down, Olsen reached out to get more support and the NASCAR community and many others responded. Olsen is currently in first-place with about 10 hours left to vote on Twitter with the hashtag, #OlsenWPMOYChallenge.
The top three finalists will be announced and the winner will be selected prior to Super Bowl LI. If Olsen wins, his Receptions for Research Foundation will receive $25,000, which helps children with congenital heart disease and also goes toward cancer research.
