Moreno, Studesville Earn Ed Block Courage Honors

Posted Dec 6, 2013

Running back Knowshon Moreno and Running Backs Coach Eric Studesville were both honored by the Ed Block Courage Foundation.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – For their courage in the face of adversity, both running back Knowshon Moreno and his position coach Eric Studesville will be honored  by the Ed Block Courage Foundation.

Moreno was selected by the Broncos as the 2013 Ed Block Courage Award winner and Studesville is receiving special consideration from the foundation for his perserverance in the wake of the sudden and tragic loss of his parents Al and Jan in June.

Moreno was selected for the Ed Block Courage Award honoring players who exemplify commitments to the principles of sportsmanship and courage. He is being honored for his work coming back from an ACL tear in the 2011 season and another knee injury in the playoff game in January to ultimately start each game of the 2013 season to date and lead the team in rushing. In addition to his rushing yardage, he’s also caught 42 passes for 414 yards and two touchdowns – putting him well over 1,200 yards of total offense.

Studesville is in his fourth season as the running backs coach for the Broncos and is lead a unit that has scored 14 touchdowns and registered more than 1,500 yards this season. That group includes rookie Montee Ball who just had the first 100-yard rushing game of his career in the win against Kansas City.

Moreno has been the leading force behind the Broncos’ success on the ground this season. He ranks seventh among all NFL running backs with 1,256 yards from scrimmage and is tied for the league lead at his position with 11 touchdowns.

With his current numbers, Moreno is one of just five players to have more than 800 rushing and 400 receiving yards this season and he is on pace to become the franchise’s first 1,000 yard rusher with 500 receiving yards.

The Ed Block Courage Award is named in honor of Ed Block, the longtime head athletic trainer of the Baltimore Colts, who was a pioneer in his profession and a respected humanitarian. Recipients for the award are selected by their teammates for team effort as well as individual performance.
