Arthur Blank inducted into Leadership Hall of Fame

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank was inducted into the National Football Foundation Leadership Hall of Fame Sunday at Atlanta’s College Football Hall of Fame.

The NFF Leadership Hall of Fame, which was established in 2013, recognizes individuals who have achieved high levels of success and displayed influential leadership along the way. Members of the NFF Leadership Hall of Fame must exhibit the qualities of dedication, discipline, determination and integrity among others. 

"It is all about us working together. It's all about unity. It's all about being the best of who we are. It's all about listening to each other. Respecting each other and then responding," Blank said when accepting the award. "So in that context I accept this award, and I accept it with great humility. The College Football Hall of Fame is a blessing to our community and to our city."
