Ricky Byrdsong was a dedicated husband, father of three, Northwestern University basketball coach, AON employee and man of deep faith and convictions.  This award was created in 1999 in response to the hate crime that took his life and is intended to recognize men who are good fathers, have reached out and made a difference in the lives of youth, and have a demonstrated spiritual dimension to their lives

A panel of individuals including Sherialyn Byrdsong reviews nominations and the award is presented at the annual IFI/Fall Fatherhood Celebration Luncheon.  Past Recipients of the Ricky Byrdsong Award include Mike Singletary, Bob Muzkowski, Dr. Harold Davis, Philip Jackson, Johnny Zayas, Carlos Burns, Joseph Whittington, and Fernando Carrasco.
