Chris Conley nominated for the AFCA Good Works Team

Conley, who is also one of the best quotes in the conference, is vying for one of 11 slots, to be announced in September. He is one of 182 official nominees. Chris is a journalism major from Dallas, Ga. He has received the UGA Sportsmanship & Ethics Award and among other honors serves as the football representation on the UGA Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.

The Amercian Football Coaches Association (AFCA) and Allstate recognize 11 FBS and 11 FCS/DII/DIII/NAIA players each season who have made a commitment to enriching the lives of others while contributing to the greater good of their communities.

Chris Conley’s good works include:

  • Regularly visiting patients at Athens St. Mary’s Hospital
  • Speaks at “Learn, Play, Excel” events, a community outreach initiative to help inspire kids to stay in school
  • Volunteers with organizations including Samaritan’s Feet, Camp Sunshine and UGA Special Olympics
  • Awarded the “Peach of an Athlete” honor by the Atlanta Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America for volunteer efforts

Congrats to a Damn Good Dawg.

Fiutak doesn't know what to do with his hands. But, for being the douche he is, he's still right - UGA doesn't win SEC championships under Richt (at least recently). Truth hurts. I hope the Dawgs can turn that around this year...
