Carter Nominee For Allstate AFCA Good Works Team
July 10, 2017

Minnesota wide receiver Eric Carter was announced today as one of 146 nominees for the 2017 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team. The award is one of the most prestigious off-the-field honors in college football and brings together a select group of college football players from across the country to honor their dedication to volunteerism and enriching the lives of others.

While players are often recognized for their accomplishments and achievements on game day, these student-athletes have made significant contributions to the greater good of society, inspiring future generations of young athletes and the larger college football community.

Carter was nominated for this esteemed award as he embodies the true spirit of teamwork and selflessness and donates his limited free time to helping and serving others.

Once the final team members are announced in September, college football fans are encouraged to visit the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team website on ESPN.com, featuring profiles and images of the players, for the opportunity to vote for the 2017 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team Captain. Throughout the season, fans can also follow along and join in on the conversation by searching and using #GoodWorksTeam on their social media channels.
