The American Football Coaches Association announced 151 nominees for the 2013 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team on Wednesday, the most ever in the award’s 22-year history.
The award recognizes college football players who have "made a commitment to enriching the lives of others while contributing to the greater good of their communities."
Here are the nominees from the ACC:
To be eligible, each player must be actively involved and committed to working with a charitable organization, service group or community service while maintaining a strong academic standing.
A voting panel of former Allstate AFCA Good Works Team members and media members will select 11 FBS players and 11 players from FCS, Division II, Division III and NAIA to the 2013 Good Works Team. The team will be announced in September.
