Bills Trainer Credited with Saving Damar Hamlin's Life Receives One NFL MVP Vote

Denny Kellington, the Buffalo Bills assistant athletic trainer credited with delivering life-saving CPR to Damar Hamlin after the player collapsed on the field, received a vote for the NFL’s most valued player award.

The nod reportedly came from ESPN reporter Suzy Kolber who said that she voted for Kellington was a “symbolic gesture representing ‘everyone’ who carries the weight of that job, every week. They rarely get the recognition they deserve,” the New York Post reported.

The MVP award, tallied among the votes of 50 sports journalists who cover the NFL, is awarded based on each voter’s top five picks. And Kellington received one fifth-place vote.

Hamlin has also been full of praise for Kellington’s efforts to deliver CPR after the player collapsed with cardiac arrest during the Jan. 2 game between the Bills and Cincinnati Bengals.
