BYU senior Quarterback Tanner Mangum is being recognized for his off-the-field accomplishments, as he has been named a 2018 Allstate & AFCA Good Works Team Nominee.
The Allstate AFCA Good Works Team is comprised of 11 players from each division of college football at the end of the regular season. Here is the official description from the AFCA Good Works Team Website:
“The Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® has been one of the most esteemed honors in college football for more than 25 years. The student-athletes who are nominated for this award not only demonstrate a unique dedication to community service and desire to make a positive impact on the lives around them, but they also show tremendous perseverance as well as the ability to overcome personal struggles and come out victorious against all odds.”
Tanner is one of 169 nominees across the FBS, FCS, Division 2, Division 3 and NAIA levels of college football.
Last offseason, Tanner made headlines when he opened up about his struggle with depression and anxiety. His initial Instagram post made the rounds not only in the BYU community but the national college football scene as a whole.
Congrats to Tanner for being recognized for his off-the-field contributions!
