Prince Harry To Receive THIS Award?!

( – Even though he has been out of his royal duties since 2020 and served the United Kingdom during his youth, Prince Harry is set to receive the Pat Tillman Award for Service at the 2024 ESPYs.

The 39-year-old prince, along with former National Football League (NFL) safety Steve Gleason, will be honored with the esteemed Arthur Ashe Award for Courage and the Pat Tillman Award for Service at the ceremony on July 11.

“This one is for our entire service community,” Harry said upon hearing about the honor.

The prestigious award is given to individuals who have made significant contributions that reflect the legacy of former NFL player and U.S. Army Ranger, Pat Tillman.

“It’s our privilege to recognize three incredible individuals — Steve Gleason, Dawn Staley, and Prince Harry,” Kate Jackson, VP of Production at ESPN, said in a statement.

“These honorees have used their platforms to change the world and make it more inclusive for marginalized and suffering communities, demonstrating incredible resilience, positivity, and perseverance. We’re thrilled to celebrate them at The 2024 ESPYS.”

Harry will be honored for his work with the Invictus Games and his military service in Afghanistan. He launched the Invictus Games in 2014, a multi-sport event for wounded or injured servicemen and veterans.

The prince will also receive the award “in honor of his tireless work in making a positive impact for the veteran community through the power of sport.”

Additionally, the Duke of Sussex recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Games in London and served in the British Armed Forces for 10 years, including two tours in Afghanistan as an Apache helicopter pilot and forward air controller.

Gleason, who played seven seasons with the New Orleans Saints from 2000 to 2006 before retiring in 2008, was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, in 2011.

Furthermore, University of South Carolina basketball coach Dawn Staley is set to receive The Jimmy V Award for Perseverance.
