FSU tight end one of 22 players to be selected for outstanding community service
Camren McDonald, a redshirt senior tight end on the Florida State University football team was selected to the 2021 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team. The Allstate AFCA Good Works Team recognizes college football athletes for their unwavering commitment to community service and their “good works” off the field. He was one of 23 people (11 FBS players, 11 players from other football divisions, one coach). to be named to this prestigious team.
This is the 30th year of the Good Works Team. However, the 2021 team is different than any of the previous 29 due to the new era of name, image, likeness legislation in college athletics.
With college athletes now able to profit off themselves while retaining their eligibility, Allstate is pledging $1 million to these Good Works Team players and the charities of their choice.
The Foundation for Leon County Schools was selected by Camren. He has volunteered at several Leon County Schools and has a good insight to the needs of the schools and the communities they serve. Because of Allstate and Camren, the Foundation has received a $10,000 grant.
“We are so pleased that Camren selected the Foundation for Leon County Schools. It is student-athletes such as Cam who make college sports a wonderful part of our community. We will be working closely with Cam to determine the best use of the grant funds”, stated Eric Clark, Executive Director of the Foundation for Leon County Schools.
In addition to the financial support, McDonald will also be leading a weekly initiative with other FSU football players at three Leon County schools (Ruediger Elementary, RAA Middle School, and Amos P. Godby High School). The players will interact with selected students in a variety of activities such as yoga, outdoor games, and discussion sessions.
