Timothy was one of the founding board members in the Boomer Esiason Foundation. Unfortunately, Timothy Michael O’Brien died September 11th in the attack on the World Trade Center. In his honor for what an outstanding person he was and the profound impact he had not only on the Foundation but everyone he encountered. The MVP trophy is now the Timothy M.
