Georgia Tech A-back Roddy Jones was nominated for the AFCA Good Works Team. The award recognizes volunteerism and community service by college football players.
Jones has been involved with several volunteer activites while at Tech. In particular, he has volunteered with the Special Olympics of Georgia, has visited patients and taken part in events with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and spoken at Kids @ Kollege, an event bringing inner-city children to campus.
Jones is one of 56 FBS (formerly Division I-A) nominees for the 11-player team, which will be chosen by a panel mostly consisting of former Good Works team members and media members.
Jones has started for three seasons and has 1,388 rushing yards, 26th in school history. He is also a three-time Academic All-ACC selection who earned his management degree in December.
