Reno, NV (KOLO) – Allstate and the American Football Coaches Association announced this week that Nevada senior Lucas Weber has been nominated for the 2019 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team. Last year, the Wolf Pack was represented by former Silver & Blue quarterback Ty Gangi.
The final 22-member team and honorary coach is selected by a voting panel consisting of former Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® members and prominent media members such as Tim Tebow, Kirk Herbstreit and many others.
The team will look for both their dedication to giving back and the embodiment of true leadership on and off the football field. The final 23 team members will be announced on Sept. 12, 2019.
The Reno native has been active in the community, including volunteering last Easter to help feed the homeless in downtown Reno. He also attended Lemelson Elementary for Reading Week to read to the kids and helped with a fundraiser at Scheels that benefitted the Children’s Cancer Foundation.
Weber appeared in 12 games last season where he recorded 56 tackles and 10.5 for loss. He also totaled a career-best 5.5 sacks, as well as one pass breakup and a fumble recovery.
