Ryan Anderson Earns Aleve-Publix ‘Hustle Player of the Year’ Honors
Orlando, Fla. – Ryan Anderson was named the Aleve-Publix ‘Hustle Player of the Year’ at halftime of the Orlando Magic’s regular season home finale Wednesday evening against the Charlotte Bobcats. At the close of each month this season, Aleve has highlighted the top hustle plays of the month in-game and has allowed Magic fans the opportunity to go online to OrlandoMagic.com to vote for the player they felt showed the most heart and hustle. Due to his constant commitment to playing every game with more excitement than the last, Anderson was selected as the recipient of the 2011-12 Aleve-Publix ‘Hustle Player of the Year’ honor.
Anderson accepted the award from Larry Bond with Bayer Healthcare, who represented Aleve, and Maria Brous with Publix Super Markets. In honor of Anderson’s accomplishments, Bayer Healthcare is donating $5,000 to CECO – the Conductive Education Center of Orlando. CECO is also a 2011 grant recipient from the Orlando Magic Youth Fund, a McCormick Foundation Fund.
