Jeff Gordon stepped into some select company Friday.

Two Heisman Trophy winners and an official of the organization that presents the trophy traveled to Pocono Raceway to announce that Gordon will be the seventh recipient of the Heisman Humanitarian Award.

The award is presented to an athlete who “gives back to improving the lives of others,” said Heisman Memorial Trust official Jim Corcoran. National Football League and National Hockey League players and Olympians are among the other recipients of the award.
