Auburn's T'Sharvan Bell Nominated To AFCA Good Works Team

AUBURN, Ala. – Auburn junior defensive back T'Sharvan Bell has been nominated to the American Football Coaches Association Good Works Team, announced the AFCA on Tuesday. Bell is one of a record 132 players from Divisions I, II, III and the NAIA nominated for the team.

Nominees have to be actively involved and committed to working with a charitable organization, service group or involved in other community service activities. Candidates for the Good Works Team have to display sincere concern and reliability, while also having made a favorable impression on the organizations with which they are involved. Athletic ability is not a criteria. Nominations were submitted to the AFCA by college sports information departments.

"The AFCA Good Works Team is one of the most important awards in college football because it highlights some of the best and brightest student-athletes in the country," said Grant Teaff, AFCA Executive Director. "With this being the 20th year of this outstanding award, it's great to see a record number of nominees sent in from some of the leading football programs in the nation."

Bell has been active in the Student-Athlete Advisory Council's Beat Bama Food Drive and Toys for Tots while also taking time to visit local elementary schools as part of the Auburn FCA chapter.

Earlier this year, the Kissimmee, Fla., native played in the City of Dothan's Special Olympics volleyball game, facing the team that went on to the Special Olympics World Championships. He also participated in a fundraiser for the American Red Cross/IMPACT Meal for Haiti campaign on campus.

Bell appeared in 11 games last season for the Tigers, helping Auburn to the national championship. He had three starts on the season and totaled 38 tackles with 3.5 coming in for a loss. He also had an interception and was tied for third on the team with four pass break-ups.
