US war hero Pat Tillman’s mother ‘Shocked’ by Prince Harry’s award, web fans petition for rescindment

Spare book by Prince Harry Duke of Sussex – California, USA – February, 2023

Mary Tillman, the mother of US war hero and NFL player Pat Tillman, recently voiced her surprise and dismay over ESPN’s decision to honor Prince Harry with the Pat Tillman Award at the upcoming ESPYs in Hollywood.

Web fans have expressed their disappointment with ESPN’s choice, leading to a petition urging the sports network to reconsider.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Mary Tillman stated, “I am shocked as to why they would select such a controversial and divisive individual to receive the award.” She emphasized that many other individuals, particularly unsung heroes, deserved recognition more, and they could use the spotlight to benefit society.

ESPN presents the Pat Tillman Award annually to someone who has served others in a manner that reflects Pat Tillman’s legacy. However, ESPN did not consult Tillman’s mother before announcing this year’s recipient.

The petition submitted to ESPN argues that Prince Harry’s involvement in various controversies makes him an unsuitable choice for such an honor.


Pat Tillman was an accomplished NFL player who left his successful football career to join the military. He served in Iraq and Afghanistan, ultimately losing his life to friendly fire in Afghanistan in 2004.

In 2023, the Buffalo Bills training staff received the Pat Tillman Award for their heroic efforts in saving the life of Damar Hamlin, who went into cardiac arrest on the football field.

Prince Harry named the 2024 recipient, founded the Invictus Games, an international event for wounded and injured veterans. He also served two tours in Afghanistan. Despite these contributions, his controversial public image has led many, including notable figures like Pat McAfee and Mary Tillman, to believe there are more fitting candidates for the Pat Tillman Award.
