OXNARD, Calif. -- Before Wade Phillips' news conference Wednesday, tight end Jason Witten received the Pro Football Weekly's 12th annual Arthur S. Arkush Humanitarian Award for his charity work.
It's the second time a Cowboys player has won the award. Safety Roy L. Williams won the award in 2006.
Witten's SCORE Foundation helps find male trained mentors in battered women's shelters in Texas. The men work with young boys in dealing with domestic violence issues.
Witten also thanked Emily Robbins, the Cowboys' community relations director, for her help in getting him out in the community.
"I'm humbled by it," Witten said.
