Prince Harry made a surprise appearance at the annual NFL awards presentation to present the Walter Payton Man of the Year award.

Defensive lineman Heyward was presented with the honor by the British royal. 

‘I want to say thank you to the Pittsburgh Steelers for giving me this opportunity,’ he said. 

‘Mike T (Tomlin), it’s an honor to be coached by you. I couldn’t play for any other coach. To my teammates, I’m thankful to be your teammate.’ 

This was the sixth time the Steelers nominated Heyward for the award. Heyward created the Heyward House Foundation that supports several initiatives in the Pittsburgh area.

The foundation also honors his father, Craig ‘Ironhead’ Heyward, a fullback who played 11 seasons in the NFL. He died in 2006 at 39 of brain cancer.

The Walter Payton Man of the Year award is given to player’s with a commitment to philanthropy and community impact, as well as excellence on the field.
