Former NFL communications director Liu wins PFWA award

NEW YORK (AP) — Randall Liu, the former NFL director of football communications, has won the Jack Horrigan Award from the Professional Football Writers of America.

Liu, who employed by the NFL for 18 years and recently joined CBS Sports, is the eighth person who has worked for the league to receive the honor. The Horrigan Award is given to the league or club official for displaying qualities and professional style in helping the pro football writers do their job. It is named the sports writer for UPI and the Buffalo Evening News, public relations director for the American Football League (1963-66), and vice president of public relations for the Buffalo Bills (1966-73).

Liu was cited for the Horrigan Award for his professionalism, promptness, candor and effectiveness in coordinating media access at the NFL's major events, including the Super Bowl.

Other 2018 nominees were Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, NFL communications vice president Brian McCarthy, and Los Angeles Rams general manager Les Snead.
