Football player getting tackledAllstate Auto Insurance is honoring college football athletes for the work they do off the field. The car insurance company along with the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA), has released the names of the 22 players named to the 2010 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team. The program honors student-athletes who have had positive impacts on communities.

This year’s field of nominees was the most competitive in the Allstate Insurance-sponsored program’s 19-year history. More than 100 student-athletes were nominated for the prestigious award.

The accomplishments of the nominees vary, but all show a high level of commitment to others. One student-athlete served on a medical trip to Africa while another offered companionship to those in the elderly community.

Allstate Insurance’s vice president of sales and service, Guy Hill, says it’s important to recognize athletes for the good work they perform off the field.

“Allstate’s partnership with the AFCA to present this award is not about X’s and O’s,” says Hill. “By shining a spotlight on college football student-athletes who demonstrate a unique commitment to serving their communities, we are protecting the integrity of the sport and showcasing its positive impact that extends well beyond the field of play.”
