Recently retired Dallas Cowboys center Travis Frederick, who was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2019 after missing the entire 2018 season due to a diagnosis of Guillain-Barré syndrome, was selected as the 2020 George Halas Award winner by the Professional Football Writers of America (PFWA).

Frederick, the 52nd Halas Award winner, is the second member of the Cowboys franchise to receive the honor from the PFWA, joining Roger Staubach (1980).

Other 2020 nominees for the Halas Award were Baltimore Ravens tight end coach Bobby Engram, Minnesota Vikings defensive lineman Everson Griffen, Los Angeles Chargers tackle Russell Okung and Raiders tight end Darren Waller.

The Halas Award is given to an NFL player, coach or staff member who overcomes the most adversity to succeed. The award is named for Halas, a charter member (1963) of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, who was associated with the Chicago Bears and NFL from their inception in 1920 until his death in 1983 as an owner, manager, player and promoter. Halas won 324 games and six NFL titles in 40 seasons as a coach.

The Halas Award is one of the two-oldest awards presented by the PFWA, along with the Dick McCann Award, presented to a reporter who has made a long and distinguished contribution to pro football through coverage.
