HBCU Gameday x Protect Your Skull Player of the Year

Protect Your Skull, LLC. and HBCU Gameday FCS and Division II National Players of the Year.

Each year we recognize these outstanding student-athletes for winning the Protect Your Skull and HBCU Gameday Player of the Year Award.

This is one of the few opportunities that athletes from historically black colleges and universities get the chance to be nationally recognized for their excellence. “The award appropriately reflects not only their great performances on the field but it is also a testament to great character, leadership, integrity, discipline, and work ethic,” said Protect Your Skull co-founder Tracey Suggs.
