Air Force Master Sgt. Israel Del Toro receives Pat Tillman Award at 2017 ESPYs

During the 2017 ESPY Awards Wednesday night, comedian and television host Jon Stewart presented U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Israel Del Toro with the Pat Tillman Award for service.

Del Toro was severely injured while on tour in Afghanistan in 2005 when his military truck drove over a bomb. Del Toro lost most of his fingers and more than 80 percent of his body was severely burned. He went into a coma for three months and was given a 15 percent chance of survival. When he awoke from the coma, he was told he likely wouldn’t be able to breathe or walk again on his own. 

Del Toro not only did both, he also used sports as rehabilitation, later competing in the Invictus Games, a sports competition for wounded service members. In 2014, he won a silver medal in powerlifting, and in 2016, he won gold in the shot put.

He was awarded Wednesday for his perseverance, military service and athletic pursuits, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“He found a way not just to survive against the odds, but to thrive. He is a study in strength, tenacity, bravery and service,” Stewart said, calling Del Toro “a soldier who has gone through pain and struggling you would not believe just to survive and be here tonight.”

Del Toro said he was honored and humbled to receive the award. 

“Receiving this award is still strange for me. I don’t see myself as someone special,” he said at the awards show. “Thank you for letting this guy who just had a bad day at work feel like someone special tonight.”

Del Toro talked about what it felt like to be tapped for the award last month.  

“I’m humbled for even being considered for this prestigious award named after Pat Tillman, a man I admire, but to actually receive this honor is unbelievable,” Del Toro said in a statement. “When I heard that Pat Tillman gave up a career in the NFL to serve his country after the 911 attacks, it gave me so much pride to call him a brother in arms. He truly is a shining example of Service Before Self. To Mrs. Tillman and the Pat Tillman Foundation, I give you my pledge that I’ll always try to live up to the true meaning of the Pat Tillman Award for Service in everything I do, and to represent his spirit to the best of my ability.”

Del Toro still serves in the military as an Air Force technician.

Pat Tillman, a former NFL player, left the league in 2002 to enlist in the Army after the Sept. 11 attacks. He was killed in Afghanistan in 2004.

5 films (besides ‘Baby Driver’) you didn't know were set in Atlanta

If you've seen the recently released movie "Baby Driver," you've probably gotten caught up in the excitement of thinking, "Hey, I know where that is!" countless times as you watch the car chases unfold. 

Atlanta plays a very prominent role in the movie, which was also filmed here. Though there’s a running list of films and television shows that are shot in the Atlanta area, there are fewer lists devoted to those films that have Atlanta plot lines.

If you want to see more of the ATL on the big screen, try watching these five films you probably didn’t realize were set in Atlanta:


The 2012 comedy features Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd as a married couple who are moving from New York to Atlanta after they both find themselves out of work. On their way to the city, they stop at a commune in Georgia before ending up in Atlanta. There's some back-and-forth as the characters are torn between the commune's free love atmosphere and the promise of jobs in Atlanta. And in a scene after the credits, the sister-in-law of Rudd's character is shown as a cast member of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."

Not only was the film set in Atlanta, but it was also filmed in Atlanta, Lawrenceville, Monroe and Clarkesville, which served as the setting for the fictional commune.

The winner of the Oscar for Best Picture was set in both Atlanta and Miami, although it was filmed in Miami and other parts of Florida.

"Moonlight" tells the story of its lead character through three stages of his life as he deals with his sexuality and identity. In his adulthood, Chiron, who is now known as "Black," is living in Atlanta, dealing drugs. By the time the movie’s plot changes from Miami to Atlanta, the character, who's now being played by Trevante Rhodes, is living alone in a small house and has bulked up considerably since his youth. The film’s last scenes, which we won’t reveal here, are also set in Atlanta.

"Catch Me if You Can"

The 2002 film is based on the true story of Frank Abagnale Jr. (played by Leonardo DiCaprio), who impersonated a doctor, lawyer and airline pilot while scamming people out of millions of dollars before he reached the age of 19.

Part of the film is set at the former Riverbend Apartments off Interstate 285 in Atlanta. Overlooking a bend in the Chattahoochee River, the complex became famous – or infamous – in the 1970s for its clubhouse keg parties, nude swimming and swinging singles lifestyle. And at the end of the movie – spoiler alert! – Frank is sentenced to 12 years in maximum security prison in Atlanta.

"Trouble with the Curve"

Atlanta – as well as the Braves – figure prominently in this story of an aging baseball scout who's given one last assignment to try to prove his value to the organization. Clint Eastwood portrays the Braves scout, who is accompanied by his daughter, played by Amy Adams, on a scouting trip to North Carolina.

In addition to a plotline that centers around the Braves, the movie was filmed at Turner Field and George's Bar & Restaurant in Atlanta and other locations in Georgia.

"Ride Along"

The 2014 action-comedy stars Kevin Hart as a security guard who applies to the Atlanta City Police Academy. He tries to prove himself to his girlfriend's brother, played by Ice Cube, by riding along on a 24-hour patrol of Atlanta.

Along the way, the duo responds to a call at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market, and you can also spot CNN Center and Bank of America Plaza in the movie.

In the movie's sequel, "Ride Along 2," the story returns to Atlanta, where the filmmakers turned the second floor of the Georgia Capitol rotunda into a night club.
