According to WABI TV 5, Bill Belichick is set to received one of the Nation's highest civilian honors, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The longtime New England Patriots Coach is the only coach in NFL history to win six Super Bowl titles.

Bill Belichick admits that he is not a political person though back in 2016 he wrote a letter of praise about Donald Trump prior to his election victory. Recently, the President has been selecting several political donors and sports figures to receive the coveted honor and though it's typically presented in a televised ceremony, accolades are expected to be dispersed in a more private setting this go around. Trump has been widely avoiding most press since the November election.

Belichick also run the 'Bill Belichick Foundation' which helps to provide scholarships and grant funds to underprivileged youth that want to participate in sports programs. The award is expected to be presented on Thursday according to a White House staffer who chose to remain anonymous.
