Irving, Texas - Conference USA Commissioner Britton Banowsky named the 12 student-athletes that received the inaugural C-USA Spirit of Service award today, and Tulsa's Moton Hopkins was among those selected.

TU defensive end, Hopkins has volunteered in several activities, including University Ambassadors, Spring 2008 Service Day - Habitat for Humanity, and helped with Tri-Delta sorority's pancake sale benefiting St. Jude Hospital. The Converse, Texas, native also helped with the Tulsa ice storm clean up, the moving of the Red Cross office in Sapulpa, Okla., and donated a Thanksgiving meal for GUTS church. Hopkins currently maintains a 3.37 GPA in marketing and shares his love for education and children by reading to students at several local elementary schools and speaking to youth football teams.

The C-USA Spirit of Service Award is designed to recognize the community service efforts of the league's student-athletes, based upon significant community service, good academic standing and participation in their elected sport. The Spirit of Service award will be presented three times throughout the season, with today's honorees representing Conference USA's fall sports: football, soccer, volleyball and cross country.
