RB Jeffrey Coprich's community service has been discussed in the past and he has been recognized by his good work by being nominated for the 2014 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team.
Unfortunately, that press release is a little light on details about Coprich, but here are some more details that CGB received from this announcement.
To help shine a light on these remarkable ‘good works,' Allstate and the AFCA are honored to announce Coprich as a nominee for the 2014 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team®, who boasts an impressive resume of community service accomplishments, including:
- Establishing the Essence K. Coprich Book Club in honor of his sister
- Tutoring students with the Inner City Youth Foundation
- Co-founding the Unsung Heroes Awards, honoring inner-city student-athletes
On that note, we've got another awesome Cal running back spending his free time to the benefit of the youth, but this guy is just a little bit more popular. RB Marshawn Lynch spoke to some Bay Area youth about his trouble-making start as a kid and how he turned that all around.
After attending a funeral for a neighborhood friend slain at the age of 7, Lynch told himself, "I don't want that to be me."
Still, he struggled in school and tried to hide the fact that he was enrolled in resource classes. Finally, after receiving a recruiting letter from then-Notre Dame coach Tyrone Willingham that he couldn't read because it was written in cursive, Lynch asked for help.
"I would have never imagined going to Cal," he said.
Kudos to these Bears for being awesome on and off the field.
