Allstate and the American Football Coaches Association released the names of the 109 football players nominated for the AFCA’s Good Works Team. Buford graduate Harry Miller, who plays center for the Ohio State Buckeyes’ football team was one of the players nominated for this award.
The AFCA’s Good Works Team recognizes student-athletes who go above and beyond to give back to communities, excel in academics and have an impact on and off the field.
Miller, a junior mechanical engineering student, has been involved with mission trips to Nicaragua since high school. He is currently serving as a board member at Mission 4 Nicaragua, a nonprofit organization that operates a school and distributes food and medicine to less fortunate families in Los Brasiles.
Miller has taken teammates with him on his mission trips to Nicaragua and has even started selling merchandise like sweatshirts, shirts and baseball hats with the profits being donated to Mission 4 Nicaragua.
In September, the 22 players and coach that will make up the AFCA Good Works Team will be announced. Fans will then be able to cast their vote for the team captain.
