The 2015 ESPYs. Mo’ne Davis Wins Best Breakthrough Athlete. Danielle Green Receives Pat Tillman Award for Service. + Red Carpet.
Fourteen-year-old powerhouse pitcher Mo’ne Davis took some time off during a 20-City Civil Rights tour with her team to accept the award for Breakthrough Athlete at last night’s ESPY awards. The young athlete took the stage in a frilly white number and delivered a brief speech, thanking her parents, coaches, and all of the people who have supported her.
Danielle Greene, 38, was presented with the Pat Tillman Award for Service. In 2004, Greene, a former star basketball player at Notre Dame, lost an arm in a grenade explosion in Iraq while serving in the U.S. military. The Purple Heart recipient continues to be an inspiration for athletes, soldiers, and more.
