MISHAWAKA — Bethel College senior Clay Yeo has been nominated for the 2017 Allstate Good Works Team, one of the most prestigious off-the-court honors in men's college basketball.
This is the fifth season Allstate and the National Association of Basketball Coaches have teamed up to recognize a select group of student-athletes for their community service.
There are 181 nominees throughout the country, from which a final roster of 10 recipients will be chosen – five from Division I and five from Divisions II, III and the NAIA. The team will be announced in February.
Among Yeo's accomplishments off-court are: assisting with clinics and camps for children in South Bend's inner city; working with Lifeline, an organization committed to getting young people off the streets and away from drugs and violence; encouraging his team to adopt an 8-year-old named Brady Burkhart of Elkhart, who has fought cancer since 2010; and visiting the Dominican Republic where he taught basketball to children.
