KINGSPORT — A local man who is playing in the National Football League has won an award for his charitable work. 

Coty Sensabaugh won the Boy Scouts Distinguished Citizenship Award. Sensabaugh didn’t set out to win an award. He just wanted to raise awareness about leukemia and lymphoma. 

“It was an honor to win,” he said. “It was never a goal to win an award. I just wanted to make an impact in the community.”

The Boy Scouts Distinguished Citizenship Award recognizes noteworthy and extraordinary leadership of citizens in communities across the United States. The Boy Scouts feel that honoring distinguished citizenship delivers a message to youth that character counts and puts into place guideposts that serve to inspire youth to lead, accept responsibility and to care about principles and causes beyond self-interest.

Sensabaugh was recognized for the award because of his extensive role throughout Nashville and Kingsport. Last year, his rookie year, Sensabaugh participated in the Man of the Year campaign hosted by the NFL. He worked with the Tennessee chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
