NBA legend Bill Russell was honored with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. Past recipients of the award include Nelson Mandela and Muhammad Ali. The award is inspired by the life of tennis great Arthur Ashe, who used his fame and stature to advocate for human rights. As stated by ESPN and The ESPYs, "Winners of the Ashe Award strive to carry on Ashe's legacy in their own lives - - inspired by those who do so each day."

"I'm humbled to receive the Arthur Ashe Award," Russell said a statement. "It is a great honor to be part of a unique group of previous recipients."

South Bay high school football coach Rob Mendez, who was born without arms or legs, was awarded the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance. In a special thank you letter, Mendez wrote, "The game has given me a life that nobody believes a man in a wheelchair born without arms and legs could have. Together, we've proved all of them wrong. And it's only the beginning."
