In January, 2013, Allstate Insurance Company, the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) announced the creation of the Allstate NABC Good Works Team® and the Allstate WBCA Good Works Team®. The awards recognize a unique group of men’s and women’s college basketball student-athletes who stand out for their charitable achievements and community involvement.
The Allstate NABC and WBCA Good Works Teams® are composed of 10 college basketball student-athletes who have made outstanding contributions in the areas of volunteerism and civic involvement, as determined by separate voting panels composed of former coaches, student-athletes and media. The first recipients of the awards were announced on Feb. 26, 2013.
Coaches and sports information directors nominate deserving student-athletes for the Allstate NABC and WBCA Good Works Teams® on behalf of their schools. The 10-player Allstate NABC and WBCA Good Works Teams® will each feature five student-athletes from the NCAA® Division I level and five student-athletes from NCAA® Divisions II, III and the NAIA.
Members of the Allstate NABC Good Works Team® are invited each year to attend the NABC Convention and NCAA®Men’s Final Four®, where they participate in a community project in the city.
Since 2008, Allstate has worked with the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) as sponsor of the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team®, which shines a spotlight on the positive, off-the-field impact college football student-athletes have on their communities.
