  • Print

WINNIPEG — Over the past four seasons, few players have shown more heart on and off the field than Bomber offensive lineman Obby Khan.

The Bombers announced this morning that offensive lineman Obby Khan is this year's recipient of the Cal Murphy Heart of a Legend Award.

Khan, in his sixth CFL season and fourth with the Bombers, also won the award last season.

The award is presented to the Blue Bomber who best demonstrates outstanding sportsmanship and dedication to the CFL and community.

Khan is also the team's nominee for the prestigious Tom Pate Memorial Award, which is presented annually by the CFL and CFLPA.

Khan gives his time to the Crohns and Colitis Foundation of Manitoba/ Saskatchewan, the Society for Manitobans with Disabilities, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and Variety, the Children's Charity of Manitoba.

Khan has also created Khan's Kids, to help underprivileged kids in Winnipeg, and Winnipeg Project, to fight poverty and aid disadvantaged children in Namibia, Africa.
