CLAUDE GIROUX became the face of the Flyers this year. By winning the 2012 John Wanamaker Athletic Award, he has become the embodiment of Philadelphia sports.
Giroux was selected from among 10 finalists for the award, a list that included LeSean McCoy, Bernard Hopkins and Hunter Pence. He had a career-high 93 points.
“This year’s recipients are wonderful representatives of the caliber of individuals in the Philadelphia sports community,” said David Montgomery, the chairman of the Philadelphia Sports Congress.
