Former Georgia Tech All-American receiver Calvin Johnson has been nominated for a pair of ESPY Award, and fan voting is underway until the live ESPYS show starts July 17th on ESPN. @BigPlayCJ is up for ESPY’s in the categories of Best Record-Breaking Performance and Best NFL Player.
The cover man for Madden NFL 13, “Megatron” is the NFL’s best receiver, leading the league in receiving yards in each of the last two years. This past December 22 versus the Atlanta Falcons, Johnson broke Jerry Rice’s 17-year old record single-season receiving yards (1,848) en route to 1,964 yards.
The 2013 ESPYS presented by Capital One airs live on Wednesday, July 17 at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN. This year’s show is hosted by Jon Hamm, who coincidentally is in the midst of filming “Million Dollar Arm” — a movie shot partially on Georgia Tech’s campus.
