Lions’ football player Greg Tabar selected to the 2012 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team

Mount junior punter Greg Tabar (Cincinnati, OH/Colerain) has been selected as one of the 11 members of the 2012 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, covering schools in the Football Championship Subdivision (I-AA), Divisions II, III and NAIA. Eleven others players were named to the Good Works Team from schools in Division I-A.

The award is one of the sport’s premier service honors, the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® shines a spotlight on the positive, off-the-field impact that a select group of student-athletes has on their communities.

This summer, the program received 117 nominations from colleges and universities hailing from 35 states.  From the nominations, a prestigious voting panel comprised of former Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® members and college football media selected two 11-member teams – one featuring players competing in the NCAA® Football Bowl Subdivision and the other a combined team representing the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision, Divisions II, III and the NAIA.

Each year, the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® raises the bar for the impact that student-athletes can have on their local communities, and this year’s roster is no exception. From creating mentorship programs for at-risk youth to building homes and health clinics overseas, these 22 young men have d dedicated themselves to bettering the lives of others through countless acts of service.

Fans will have the opportunity to vote for the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® Captain by visiting ESPN.com and searching “Good Works.”  Fans can learn more about this year’s team members and their charitable accomplishments by viewing player profiles on the website.
