From the Grid to the Grid Iron: Entergy’s 2019 Linemen Lit up the Field

01/20/2020

They are at the top of their game when electrifying the grid. Now, they’ve shown they can electrify the gridiron, too.

“They” are Entergy’s 2019 Linemen of the Game, chosen for their commitment and dedication to Entergy, our customers, our communities and above all—safety.

Throughout the National Football League’s 2019 season, Entergy, as a patron saint of the New Orleans Saints, honored its own “lineman of the game” in a sideline presentation during all Saints’ home games.

In 2019, 11 Entergy field workers were recognized.

With the annual Pro Bowl, NFL Honors and Super Bowl LIV coming up, here’s our all-star line-up from the 2019 season:
