In the course of a brief but celebrated career in professional football, Sinkwich was selected for the National Football League Most Valuable Player Award. During his NFL/AAFC career, he played for the Detroit Lions, New York Yankees, and Baltimore Colts (1943-47). His injuries that he incurred during military duty hampered his playing career.
