Indiana quarterback Nate Sudfeld continues to accumulate pre-season accolades. On Wednesday afternoon it was announced by IU Athletics that Sudfeld had been named as a candidate for the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team for his community service work, which was highlighted by his spring break trip to Uganda. He has also worked extensively with the Boys & Girls Club, Read Across America, and the Andrew Luck/IU Health Change the Play Program during his time in Bloomington.
The Allstate AFCA Good Works Team has recognized college football players nationwide for their outstanding work in their communities for 24 years. The award was meant to highlight all the "good" happening off the field.
"The Allstate AFCA Good Works Team is made up of 11 players for the FBS and 11 players from the FCS, Division II, Division III, and the NAIA. The final roster will be announced in September from the nominees submitted by sports information directors across the country on behalf of their schools, a special voting panel consisting of former Allstate AFCA Good Works Team members and prominent college football media members."
Sudfeld has now been placed on a total of four "watch-lists":
- Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award
- Maxwell Award
- Wuerffel Trophy
- AFCA Good Works Team
