BATAVIA, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly says he's going to receive ESPN's Jimmy V Award for the toughness and perseverance he's displayed during his ongoing battle with oral cancer.

Kelly says cable network officials informed him about 10 days ago that he will receive the honor at the ESPY Awards next month. He made the announcement Monday while attending his charitable foundation's 32nd golf tournament outside of Buffalo.

Huskers family to welcome back Frank Solich at January event

  Huskers family to welcome back Frank Solich at January event Ohio football coach Frank Solich will return to Nebraska in January to receive the Tom Osborne Legacy Award from his former boss. The Football Writers Association of America announced Solich would be honored during the Outland Trophy banquet in Omaha. Solich was fired as Nebraska coach in 2003 after going 58-19 in six years.The organization announced Friday that Solich would be presented the Tom Osborne Legacy Award at the Outland Trophy banquet on Jan. 9 in Omaha. The FWAA said Solich has agreed to come to the event, which will be one of his few public appearances in the state since he was dismissed in 2003.

The award is named after late North Carolina State University men's basketball coach Jimmy Valvano, who gave an inspirational speech at the ESPYs in 1993 less than two months before he died of cancer.

Kelly had surgery to have cancer removed from his jaw in March after tests revealed a recurrence. The 58-year-old Kelly was initially diagnosed five years ago with skin cancer and had been cancer-free since September 2014.

Kelly is still unable to eat solid foods. He is scheduled to have an operation on June 21, when doctors plan to add tissue to the upper portion of his mouth. He is then scheduled to have permanent dentures inserted during another procedure in September.

Kelly says he's honored to receive the award, before joking that ''the only bad thing about it is you have to go through a lot to get it.''

Difficult as it has been for him, Kelly leans on his faith and says he continues to battle to help inspire others who have cancer.

''The good Lord has put me in this situation to help not only the people out there who are suffering from cancer, but little kids, too, who are going through tough times to never give up, to keep fighting because you never know,'' Kelly said.
