Allstate AFCA Good Works Team
For the most part, college football players are remembered for the great things they do on the playing field, and are rarely distinguished for their achievements away from the game. As protectors of the integrity of the sport, Allstate and the AFCA are passionate about sharing the community service contributions of these young men that may otherwise go unrecognized through the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team®.
From the 132 nominees, the most ever in the 20-year history of the award, two 11-player Good Works Teams® will be selected and announced in late September – one for the Football Bowl Subdivision (Div. I-A) and the other for the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision, Divisions II, III and NAIA. In its fourth year as sponsor, Allstate has assembled a prominent selection panel including former Good Works Team® members and well respected college football media members. Hall of Fame coach and ESPN personality Lou Holtz returns as the program’s primary ambassador.
Past members of the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® include Super Bowl champion quarterbacks Peyton and Eli Manning, ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer and 2011 NFL first-round draft pick Christian Ponder.
