Joe Andruzzi played offensive guard for the Packers from 1997 to 2000, and in 2002 as a member of the Patriots received the Ed Block Courage Award. Yesterday, in the aftermath of the attack of the Boston Marathon, Andruzzi became more than just a football player.
Andruzzi, who has three brothers who were first responders to the September 11 attacks, leads a team in the Marathon every year in an effort to raise money for his foundation. After the attacks, new organizations and bystanders captured this image of Andruzzi carrying a victim away from the scene.
