Northbrook, Ill. - University of Tulsa junior defensive back Michal Mudoh is a nominee for the 2014 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® as announced by Allstate and the American Football Coaches Association. The 182 nominees for the AFCA Good Works Team cover all divisions of college football (FBS, FCA, II, III and NAIA).
"Michael has consistently exemplified a high degree of loyalty, integrity and outstanding citizenship," said Tulsa Head Football Coach Bill Blankenship in describing the Golden Hurricane safety.
Mudoh is a member of TU's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC). Over his three years at Tulsa, he has participated in Feed My Starving Children, singing karaoke with cancer patients and caregivers at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), packed food for various projects, mentors young adults at Transformation Church, has assisted with the ministry "Chosen" for inner city youth as well as being involved in other civic-minded activities.
A 5'10" safety from Houston, Texas, Mudoh earned second-team all-Conference USA honors last year. He led TU and Conference USA, and was ranked seventh nationally for tackles with 133 stops. Mudoh also added five pass break-ups and one interception in 2013, while totaling double-figure tackles in eight games.
For 23 years the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® has served as one of the most coveted and prestigious off-the-field honors in college football. The award recognizes players whose charitable involvement and community service contributions stand out among all other student-athletes participating in the sport. Today, Allstate Insurance Company and the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) announced a record-breaking 182 nominees from across the country who represent the sport's finest in the areas of volunteerism and leadership among their peers.
Since its establishment in 1992, the award has existed to pay tribute to the "good" in college football that extends beyond the wins and the losses. While balancing academics and athletics, this select group of student-athletes nominated by their respective colleges and universities has committed their limited free time to having a lasting impact on their communities.
