Evans & McGee
Pat Evans has been a strong advocate of the Davey O'Brien Foundation and a member of the Board of Trustees for almost 20 years. Evans served as president of the Foundation from 2000-2005. Throughout that time, he instituted a number of changes, which helped the Foundation expand into what it has become today. One of the chief additions launched during Evans' presidency was the Legends Award. Established in 2001 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Davey O'Brien Foundation, the Legends Award recognizes a college or professional quarterback who has made a significant contribution to the game of football, distinguished himself as an extraordinary leader and demonstrated exemplary conduct on and off the football field.
