NFL Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

The National Football League and its teams will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a series of special events focused in week 3 of the season.

The theme of this year’s Hispanic Heritage Month recognition is “Feel the Orgullo.”  In Spanish, the word “orgullo” means pride.  Latino players, fans, and coaches have a strong sense of pride not only in their culture but in their team and the NFL.  During Hispanic Heritage Month, the NFL and all 32 teams will amplify the rich history, heritage and tradition of Latinos, and honor the positive impact they have had on the game and country.

Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, fans can visit for a look at the personal stories of Hispanic players, past and present, who have left a lasting legacy on the NFL.  Follow @NFLEspanol on Twitter or the hashtag #FeelTheOrgullo for details on a user-generated photo contest and tweet chat during which fans will be encouraged to share their pride.
