Nasir Cook Nominated For AFCA Good Works Teams

PRINCETON – Nasir Cook has been nominated for the Allstate American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Good Works Team; the organization announced today.

Established in 1992, the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team is one of the most coveted community service awards in college football. From the 135 nominees, the final roster of 23 award recipients will bring together 11 players from the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision; 11 players from the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision, Divisions II, III and the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA); and one honorary head coach. To be considered for a spot on the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, each player must be actively involved with a charitable organization or service group while maintaining strong academic standing. 

Cook started a non-profit called the Nashville Youth Initiative, an organization that strives to increase cultural competence and awareness between law enforcement and youth by using athletics and academics to bring these groups together.
