BUIES CREEK, N.C. – Campbell senior linebacker Michael Rudisill is a nominee for the 2013 Allstate Good Works Team, recently announced by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA).
The Campbell senior is one of 150 nominees from across all of college football, the most ever in the award's 22-year history. The award recognizes 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.
Last season, Rudisill made 29 tackles, including nine solo stops with a sack and a tackle for loss, adding an interception and a pass breakup in eight games.
The Second Team Academic All-PFL honoree made a season-high 11 tackles against Davidson, one of his seven starts. Rudisill is a three-time PFL Academic Honor Roll member, and earned First Team Academic All-PFL, as well as CoSIDA Academic All-District III First Team honors in 2011.
Since 1992, the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team has honored college football players at all levels of the sport for their selfless acts of giving back to the community and off-the-field achievements. These student-athletes represent the sport's finest in the areas of volunteerism and leadership amongst their peers.
From the nominees submitted by sports information directors across the nation on behalf of their schools, a special voting panel consisting of former Allstate AFCA Good Works Team members and prominent college football media members will select the 2013 Good Works Team. Comprised of 11 players from the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision and 11 players from the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision, Divisions II, III, and the NAIA, the final roster of 22 award recipients will be unveiled in September.
Allstate and the AFCA will launch the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® website on ESPN.com, featuring profiles and images of the final team members, as well as the opportunity for fans to vote for the 2013 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team Captain.
In order to meet the criteria set forth by Allstate and the AFCA, each player must be actively involved and committed to working with a charitable organization, service group or community service while maintaining a strong academic standing.
