Montae Reagor Named to Good Works Team

Defensive end honored by American Football Coaches Association

September 22, 1998

WACO, Texas - The American Football Coaches Association announced today the members of the 1998 AFCA Good Works Team, which honors those who show exceptional dedication to community service and to the betterment of the communities in which they live. Three members of this year's team, Wisconsin's Cecil Martin, Georgia's Matt Stinchcomb, and Lawrence's Eric Benedict, are repeat selections from the 1997 team.

In addition, Bulldog offensive lineman Stinchcomb joins runningback Ricky Williams of Texas as members of the 1997 Burger King Coaches All-America team named to the Good Works Team this season.

The two 11-man teams, Division I-A and a combined team from Divisions I-AA, II, III, and the NAIA, honor players for their dedication and commitment to community service. From 1992-1996, the Good Works Team was selected by the College Football Association. When the CFA disbanded in 1997, the AFCA took over the award. "The Good Works Team attempts to recognize those student-athletes who go above and beyond in service to others," AFCA Executive Director Grant Teaff says. "The AFCA is proud to honor those who have a positive impact in their communities."

Criteria: Nominations were submitted to the AFCA by college sports information departments. Nominees had to be actively involved and committed to working with a charitable organization, service group or other community service activities. Candidates had to display sincere concern and reliability, while also having made a favorable impression on the organizations with which they were involved. Athletic ability was not a criteria.
