Redfoot picked for good works team

INDIANAPOLIS – The National Association of Basketball Coaches and Allstate Insurance Company announced Tuesday the 10 men’s basketball student-athletes from across the country named to the 2015 Allstate NABC Good Works Team, and the list includes Penn State Altoona senior forward Joel Redfoot, a graduate of Hollidaysburg.

For the third year, this prestigious award pays tribute to college basketball players at all levels for their impressive commitment to giving back to their communities and positively impacting the lives of those around them.

The team is comprised of 10 student-athletes: five from NCAA Division I and five from divisions II, III, and the NAIA. Nominations were submitted by sports information directors and coaches at colleges and universities across the nation, and a record total of 158 nominees were received.

Redfoot, who is in his third year with the Penn State Altoona men’s basketball team, has been a leader within the campus’ Student-Athlete Advisory Council. He has helped spearhead several service projects such as the Special Olympics of Blair County, the Altoona Area School District’s Mountain Lion Backpack Program, local Toys for Tots collection drives, and the Soles4Souls shoe collection.
