Adams named Allstate AFCA Good Works Team nominee
MARYVILLE, Mo. – Northwest Missouri State junior quarterback Trevor Adams has been named a nominee for one of the most prestigious off-the-field honors, the 2012 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team announced by the organization Tuesday.
Adams has been instrumental in the Maryville community and surrounding areas serving as an intern with Fellowship of Christian Athletes and working in the northwest Missouri area. He also helped during the annual Spring Clean-Up, a community event that Bearcat football players participate in each season to help pick-up trash on roads sides and help the elderly with yard work.
He was also part of a group of football players who helped with Habitat for Humanity and worked with the Special Olympics. Adams also helps as a counselor at all of the Bearcat football summer camps.
The Odessa, Texas, native earned eight starts as a sophomore including the final five games of the season. Adams threw for 2,202 yards and 21 touchdowns on the season helping lead Northwest to its eighth straight NCAA Division II playoff appearance, the longest active streak in NCAA II.
Since 1992, the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® has shown a spotlight on the countless “good works” and remarkable stories of service by student-athletes at all levels of college football competition. Award recipients represent the sport’s finest in terms of character and leadership in the community.
“This year’s Allstate AFCA Good Works Team nominees have some of the most impressive community service resumes in the program’s 21-year history,” said Kathy Mabe, president of Allstate’s West regions and a member of the 2012 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team voting panel. “These young men continue to raise the bar for the impact that student-athletes can have on others, and are an inspiration to Allstate, our agents and our employees.”
From the nominees submitted by sports information directors across the nation on behalf of their schools, a special voting panel consisting of former Allstate AFCA Good Works Team members and prominent college football media members will select two 11-player Good Works Teams – one comprised of players from the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision and another representing players from the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision, Divisions II, III, and the NAIA. The final roster of 22 award recipients will be unveiled in September.
Allstate and the AFCA will launch the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® website on ESPN.com featuring profiles and images of the final team members, as well as the opportunity for fans to vote for the 2012 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team Captain.
