Oakland Raiders long snapper Jon Condo, was recently honored with the Commitment to Excellence (CTE) Award, at a dinner hosted by the Steering Committee for the Booster Clubs of the Oakland Raiders (SCBCOR). The award recognizes the player who “exemplifies the pride, poise and spirit of the Oakland Raiders,” explained SCBCOR Chairperson Dave Laughlin.

The award  is voted by the players each year and has been awarded to Raiders legends such as Marcus Allen, Tim Brown, Fred Biletnikoff, and Jim Otto. The Commitment to Excellence Award Dinner also presents an opportunity for the recipient to raise money for the charity of his choice, and Condo chose to donate the money raised in his honor $10,000 to Teammates for Kids.

Speaking about Teammates, Condo said, “It’s a wonderful charity, and it’s geared towards helping kids across the country and internationally, whether they have sicknesses or other disabilities. It just helps kids. It’s a great charity, and I’m glad I can represent it.”
