The National Football League embraces its growing and passionate Hispanic fan base all year long. This year, the NFL and its 32 teams will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a series of special events this 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.
Take a look at the personal stories of Hispanic players, past and present, who have left a lasting legacy on the NFL. Join the conversation and read and share fan stories of pride using the hashtag #FeelTheOrgullo.
