SEATTLE (AP) — Super Bowl-winning quarterback Russell Wilson has won the Good Guy Award from the Professional Football Writers of America for his professional approach to helping the journalists do their job.

In leading the Seattle Seahawks to their first NFL championship, Wilson was cited for being not only the face of the franchise, “but also the voice and conscience of it.”

Wilson is the sixth quarterback to win the award in the last seven years, and the first Seahawk. The award was first given in 2005, to Pittsburgh running back Jerome Bettis.

Wilson became only the fourth second-year quarterback and the third-youngest QB to win a Super Bowl. He led five fourth-quarter or overtime comebacks in 2013, including a 62-yard touchdown drive in the NFC championship against San Francisco.
