Sweeney will receive the inaugural Pat Tillman Award for Service at the 2014 ESPY Awards on July 16. The award is being presented in conjunction with the Pat Tillman Foundation, which invests in military veterans and their spouses through educational scholarships.
Stuart Scott, the ESPN broadcaster who has battled cancer, has been named recipient of the Jimmy V Perseverance Award, and Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted by an NFL team, will be awarded the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs.
Sweeney's coach pointed him to the U.S. national team. That led to Sochi.
"It was awesome being able to represent my country again in a different way,Wholesale Cheap Jerseys," he said.
"While the ESPYs celebrate the best accomplishments from the year in sports, we remain committed to social responsibility and the heart of the show has always been the presentation of the signature awards which, in the name of Arthur Ashe and Jim Valvano, annually honor leaders who make an impact far beyond sports," said Connor Schell, vice president of ESPN Films and Original Entertainment. "We are proud to add Pat Tillman's commitment to service and selflessness as another pillar of the ESPYs. Josh Sweeney's dedication and achievements make him a deserving recipient."
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — When retired Marine Sgt. Josh Sweeney recounts his inspirational journey following an explosion that took both his legs in Afghanistan,Air Max 90 Black Leather, he leaves out an important detail: His gold-medal winning goal.
He also doesn't mention that he's been honored with a Purple Heart for his service in the Marines.
Sweeney recently moved to Hillsboro, Oregon,Cheap Jerseys From China, with his wife,Brian Gionta Jersey, Amber. Although he's still with the national team, he's hoping to put together a sled hockey team in his new home,NFL Jerseys Wholesale, and has been working with the Western Hockey League's Portland Winterhawks.
"I still feel pretty lucky to be able to have done that," he said. "I try not to take too much credit for it."
"After being injured you think, 'What can I do now?' or 'What are my limitations?' Being out there on the ice and seeing what I could do helped make me feel better about myself," Sweeney said. "The fact that it was so hard to get to where I am today — the training was just endless and some days it felt like I got on the ice for no reason at all and I wasn't getting any better — it really helped me emotionally to push through and look at the right things I was doing. The positive things."
Pat Tillman died in action in Afghanistan in 2004 after leaving the NFL's Arizona Cardinals to enlist in the U.S. Army with his brother Kevin.
Sweeney grew up in Arizona and started playing hockey to get out of the heat. He joined the Marines in 2005 following high school.
Sweeney played on the U.S. Paralympic sled hockey team that beat the Russians 1-0 earlier this year in Sochi. He shot the game's lone goal in the second period at Shayba Arena, giving the Unites States its second straight gold medal in the event.
One of his first thoughts when he started his arduous recovery was that he'd never play hockey again.
During his second deployment,Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping, Sweeney stepped on an improvised explosive device while serving in Nowzad, Afghanistan, in 2009. He suffered severe injuries to his arm in addition to his legs.
"It was the same feeling as when I was in high school or even junior high — just being out there with some buddies and passing the puck around, shooting the puck — that feeling when you step out on the field or the ice, whatever your sport," he said. "Right then and there I knew it was something that I loved."
With both of his legs amputated as a result of his injuries, Sweeney faced months on rehabilitation. He ended up at a facility in San Antonio, where he happened to hear about a sled hockey team, the Rampage.
Chided about omitting the detail, Sweeney laughed.
