The Detroit Lions may have unearthed a star in the form of rookie wideout Amon-Ra St. Brown, and the player added another significant feather to his cap for the 2021 season after a solid Week 18.

St. Brown was up for the Pepsi Rookie of the Week vote, and fans were able to pull him off by taking the vote out. St. Brown’s great performance against Green Bay was good enough to propel him to the top of the rankings this week and give the young player yet another humbling experience.

St. Brown was urged to the award by the votes of Lions fans and it seemed to be something the young pass catcher was overwhelmed by. After announcing the award, St. Brown tweeted about the win, claiming he never thought the day would come when he would make it.

The young recipient is a very humble and introspective young man and as such is the right team leader for the future of Lions. It’s nice to see him reaping some of the rewards for an exceptional season on the field with the Lions.

How did St. Brown receive the award? Fans overdid him with some serious campaigning. The Lions’ official Twitter account was an integral part of posting the information that helped St. Brown earn the honor. The site even offered a big inducement, promising to change her Twitter profile photo to a shot of a young St. Brown if he were able to claim the award.

Luckily, St. Brown won the award, and the Lions made good on their promise as well.

It’s just another fun way for the Lions and St. Brown to connect with the team early in his fledgling career.

One big reason the Lions were able to get the win? St. Brown’s performance in the season finale against the Packers. Not only did the rookie break Roy Williams’ franchise record for yards in one season from a player in the game’s first year, he also found a way into the end zone, piling up 109 yards that day. In addition to the touchdown, St. Brown looked like a key weapon for the Lions for most of the afternoon, catching and running with the ball.

St. Brown was on fire all the way for the Lions, and the catches he made in that game were one that could springboard him into 2022. The Lions have seen St. Brown come into his own with big plays, and the fact that he gave up more during the season finale is huge for his confidence, as is the accolade.

It’s clear he’ll be a stallion for the Lions, and if anyone needs a reason for that, it can point to the way St. Brown ended the year as proof.
