Bryant Young Award?

Bryant Young is an 8-time winner of the Len Eshmont Award, and he is the definition of team before self, and quiet leadership, much beloved by the fans, a steadfast and caring Christian, and undoubtably one of the most punishing defensive players ever to dawn the gold and red.

He WAS the Len Eshmont award for 8 years, and had the love and respect of everyone on and off the field. He was the heart and soul of the defense and the heart and soul of the team for many a year. 

Understand though that Len Eshmont was part of the original 1946 Forty Niners, and died from infectious hepatitis in 1957.

What is your opinion of this?

Personally, I would rename it the Bryant Young award.

The Len Eshmont Award, the 49ers most prestigious annual honor, is an award given to the Niner who best exemplifies the "inspirational and courageous play" of Len Eshmont, a player from the original 1946 Forty Niners team.
