Best known as a linebacker who played 12 seasons in the NFL, most notably with the New York Giants. Armstead was named to five Pro Bowls, and helped the organization to wins in Super Bowl XLII and XLVI as a member of the front office staff. Armstead was joined at the Big Blue BBQ by former teammates including Keith Hamilton and Roman Oben and as well as current Giants team members including: Eli Manning, Jason Pierre-Paul and David Bass. Michael Strahan, who was in the video presentation, named Armstead as his favorite teammate and the most instinctive and expressive Giant he had ever played with.

Upon receiving the award, Armstead expressed just how thankful he was for all of his blessings and how it is in fact his gratitude that fuels his philanthropic efforts.

“My family and I have been blessed in so many ways. ‘The Big Blue’ has taught me how to respect and play the ‘game’ right – both on and off the field. The principles I learned from the Giants – always give your best, through community and service—I apply to all avenues of my life. I am truly grateful for this honor”

The awards reception was part of the full day, 2013 New York Giants Big Blue BBQ, which not only marked the annual kick off to what will be an outstanding season, but raised money and awareness for children with heart defects and cancer via The Touchdown Fund. The Touchdown Fund is an exclusive charitable partnership, a first of its kind for the New York Giants, which raises funds for the Joseph M. Sanzari Children's Hospital, the Heart & Vascular Hospital, and the John Theurer Cancer Center at HackensackUMC. The Touchdown Fund is an official partnership of the New York Football Giants and Hackensack University Medical Center Foundation.
