In addition to the stellar lineup of performers and presenters, the K-LOVE Fan Awards proudly announces Matthew Slater as this year’s recipient of the Sports Impact Award. Special teams player Matthew Slater was selected by the New England Patriots in 2008 as the fifth-round pick out of UCLA, earning 3 Super Bowl Championships and 10 Pro Bowl appearances within his 16-year NFL tenure before retiring in 2024. Known not only for his outstanding contribution on the field, Slater dedicated himself beyond the field by mentoring young players and personifying the essence of philanthropy through his family foundation Slater Family Foundation, which supports the Ron Burton Training Village, International Justice Mission, Voices of Martyrs, Open Doors, Compassion International, Danita’s Children and more. At his retirement this past March,Tom Brady called Slater a “ A true champion. The best teammate and even a better man. Congratulations on the perfect career,” with Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft commenting, “Matthew Slater wasn’t just a special teams player for the Patriots. He was a special team player who helped us win three Super Bowls and made a positive impact on the many lives he touched, both on and off the field. He is a man of integrity and high moral character who is led by his faith and committed to his family. There is no finer person than Matthew Slater. His character and commitment to our organization, his teammates and the game of football are unparalleled. We are all better for knowing Matthew Slater.” Slater’s unwavering commitment to faith and service make him a truly deserving recipient of the 2024 Sports Impact Award.
