Football: Levi Lewis Nominated to 2021 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team

Lewis assisted with hurricane relief efforts and served several local nonprofits over the course of the year

LAFAYETTE – Quarterback Levi Lewis has been recognized for his hard work off the field by being named a nominee for the 2021 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team®, Allstate and the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) announced.

In all, 109 student-athletes were nominated for the prestigious community service award.

Off the field, Lewis has served the Lafayette community in a wide variety of ways, including participating in hurricane disaster relief efforts and the Adopt-A-Family Holiday Gift Program. During the initiative, Lewis helped deliver gifts to in-need families during the holiday season.

In addition to his acts of service, the Baton Rouge native had a stellar season for the Ragin' Cajuns in 2020 throwing for 2,274 yards, the 26th most nationally, and 19 touchdowns, the 20th most in the country.

The Allstate AFCA Good Works Team was established in 1992 by the College Football Association, recognizing the extra efforts made by college football players and student support staff off the field. AFCA became the governing body of the award in 1997 and continues to honor college football players who go the extra mile for those in need. Allstate worked to present the award starting with the 2008 season.

Louisiana Football opens the 2021 season and the fourth year of the Billy Napier era on Saturday, Sept. 4, at Texas. Kickoff in Austin is slated for 3:30 p.m. CT and will be broadcast nationally on FOX.
