Hau'oli Kikaha Nominated For Allstate AFCA Good Works Team

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

If you don't already have a favorite Husky on UW's 2014 team, Hau'oli Kikaha is a pretty good candidate.

It's the season for watch lists, where football players from around the country are recognized for their on-field prowess. Hau'oli Kikaha is no stranger to these lists, having been named to watch lists for the Butkus Award, the Nagurski Award and the Bednarik Award.

The Allstate AFCA Good Works Team is not about what a player does on the field though, it recognizes what a player does off the field:

More often than not, college football players are remembered for their accomplishments on the field and are rarely recognized for their achievements outside the gridiron.  Through the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team®, Allstate and the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) recognize a select group of college football players who have made a commitment to enriching the lives of others while contributing to the greater good of their communities.

To help shine a light on these remarkable ‘good works,' Allstate and the AFCA are honored to announce these three athletes as nominees for the 2014 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team®, who boast impressive resumes of community service accomplishments

Kikaha is one of 182 nominees at this point -- and if that sounds like a lot, consider that it spans all divisions of college football, with other Washington colleges PLU and UPS each having a nominee this year -- and his works for being a nominee are:

  • Traveling twice to the French Polynesia to put on programs for the local communities there to promote academics and athletics

It's great to see a guy has been faced with a ton of adversity in his college career finally have things fall into place, where he's being recognized not only as one of the nation's elite football players but also as a good person off the field as well.
