NORTHBROOK, Ill. -- Rice junior wide receiver Klein Kubiak is one of 117 college football players who have been nominated for the 2012 Allstate American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Good Works Team®. The award recognizes the selfless contributions to volunteerism and community service made by college football student-athletes across the nation.
Kubiak heads into his junior year with 17 career receptions while also utilizing his receiving skills as the placeholder on the Owls' field goal and extra point attempts. He has also been one of the Owls' most consistent contributors to their community activities and is a two-time C-USA Commissioner's Honor Roll honoree.
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.
"After looking through the list of nominees for the 2012 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, we are recognizing some of the best student-athletes in all of college football," said AFCA executive director Grant Teaff. "These 117 nominees understand the impact each of them have on their schools and communities, and it gives me great pleasure in recognizing their efforts for what they stand for, and what they mean to college football."
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.
In order to meet the criteria set forth by Allstate and the AFCA, 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.
