ATLANTA -- Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff has won the Jack Horrigan Award from the Professional Football Writers of America for co-operation with the media.

Dimitroff is cited for being accommodating to the media, both locally and nationally.

Says PFWA vice-president D. Orlando Ledbetter, who covers the Falcons for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, "He made himself available to local and national members before the Julio Jones trade was announced to explain the team's rationale. Once the lockout was over, he provided access through the frenzied start of training camp and the free agency period to our members. This accessibility continued throughout the season and into the playoffs."

The award is named for Horrigan, a sportswriter for UPI and the Buffalo Evening News, public relations director for the American Football League (1963-66) and vice-president of public relations for the Buffalo Bills (1966-73).
