The Patriots and Bank of America Present the 31st Fan of the Year Award

Bank of America’s partnership with the New England Patriots embraces passion, loyalty, and the spirit of competition. As part of that, we both strive to recognize members of the community who go above and beyond to help others.

Since the first Patriots Fan of the Year Award in 1987, the New England Patriots have presented the Joseph R. Mastrangelo Memorial Trophy to 31 fans. The prize honors individuals who are passionate about volunteerism, loyalty, and giving back to their community.

This year the Patriots and Bank of America honor Billy Burrows as the winner of the 2017 Patriots Fan of the Year program. A season ticket member for 20 years, Billy is known for his legendary tailgates. He is a Veteran of the United States Air Force and volunteers at the Elks Lodges of Massachusetts, helping veterans in need.
