The 2021 Sports Illustrated Awards (SI Awards) presented by Pepsi Stronger Together closed out an incredible award ceremony and night of entertainment from Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock & Casino.

The event was attended by A-list athletes and talent including Rob Gronkowski, Billie Jean King, DJ Khaled, Udonis Haslem, Logan Paul, Dan Marino, Chad Johnson, and many more who came together to celebrate the moments that defined sports in 2021, with awards ranging from Athlete of the Year to Hometown Hero.

For the first time in the history of the awards, Sports Illustrated unveiled its Sportsperson of the Year live from the ceremony, presenting it to seven-time Champion, Tom Brady.

The most prestigious honor in all of sports media, Sportsperson of the Year is an annual award given to an athlete, coach, or team who best represents the spirit and ideals of sportsmanship, character, and performance.

Sports Illustrated’s issue spotlighting Brady as 2021 Sportsperson of the Year is on newsstands on December 16 with early access today at SI.com. 

Tom Brady’s 20+ year career is one of the most illustrious in the League’s history. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ star Quarterback has a record-setting 7 Super Bowl wins and holds the all-time passing record. 

Brady, who received the award from teammate and Tight-End Rob Gronkowski, accepted the honor with this to say: 

I last won this award in 2005. So much has changed since then. I mean, think of how far we’ve come…back then, Beyonce was still in Destiny’s Child, we only had two CSI’s and one NCIS! ONE!! I mean…LL Cool J was still just a rapper then. Hard to imagine. Tiger Woods and I have both won this award twice, but LeBron has won it three times. Which just means I might have to keep playing for another 16 years so I can finally win a third and catch him.”
