Texas A&M junior offensive lineman Erik McCoy was nominated to the Allstate American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Good Works Team, it was announced Tuesday.
One of the most esteemed honors in college football, the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team recognizes student-athletes who not only demonstrate a unique dedication to community service and desire to make a positive impact on the lives around them.
McCoy has participated in the Big Event, the largest, one-day, student-run service project in the nation for three years and has worked with Twin City Mission in the Bryan-College Station area. He has served at the local homeless shelter in his hometown of Lufkin, Texas, and more recently, spent a week in Haiti with Mission of Hope.
A special voting panel consisting of former Allstate AFCA Good Works Team members and prominent college football media members will review submissions from sports directors across the nation to select the 2018 Good Works Team®. Tim Tebow, two-time national champion, Heisman Trophy winner and 2009 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team member, once again headlines the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team voting panel.
The Allstate AFCA Good Works Team is comprised of 11 players from the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision and 11 players from the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision, Divisions II, III and the NAIA and one honorary head coach.
To be in consideration by Allstate and the AFCA for a nomination, each player must be actively involved with a charitable organization or service group while maintaining a strong academic standing.
The final roster of 22 award recipients and honorary head coach will be unveiled in September.
