Taysom Hill adds the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team nomination to his list of preseason awards watch lists. Hill has already been nominated to the Maxwell Award and CFPA Quarterback Trophy watch lists.

Allstate and the American Football Coaches Association announced July 15 the record 182 nominees for the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team. This award is the highest off the field honor that college football players can receive and includes FBS, FCS, DII, DIII, and NAIA players. Allstate and the AFCA seek to bring recognition to athletes for their positive impacts on their respective communities, which often occurs without public knowledge or fanfare.

Taysom Hill has been nominated to the list for his exemplary background regarding community service. His off the field highlights include serving a mission in Australia, mentoring neighborhood youths, and speaking at firesides and other events. Here is a tweet from Hill prior to a speaking engagement in Virginia last season with future Cougar Dylan Collie, who is currently serving an LDS mission himself.

Concerning the 2014 nominees, Grant Teaff, AFCA executive director stated, "It's great to see all the 'good works' these student athletes are doing at their universities and in their communities. The AFCA is proud to work with Allstate in highlighting the record number of nominees sent in for the 2014 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team." Selected honorees will be announced in a 22-man roster format this September; eleven will be FBS players and eleven will come from the FCS, DII, DIII, and NAIA programs.
