McCullough SEC Good Works Player of Week

Gainesville, Fla. - Florida senior linebacker Todd McCullough will be featured this week as the SEC Good Works Team Player of the Week on this Saturday's Jefferson-Pilot Sports telecast of the Florida vs. Mississippi State contest at 12:30 p.m.

The MacClenny, Fla. native, is involved in Goodwill Gators and is a Spirit Life Church Speaker. As part of UF's Goodwill Gators program he has participated in Gator Literacy, where Goodwill Gator student-athletes visit with elementary school students and share stories about how much they enjoy reading. A major goal of the program is to show the children that participating in sports can be a vehicle to obtaining a college-level education.

Todd McCullough is also active in the Gator Club, a partnership with Shands Hospital. Every Wednesday, a group of student-athletes visit with children seeking medical care at the Medical Plaza. Student-athletes keep the children company in the waiting room (the Gator Room) doing crafts or watching a movie while they wait for their appointments.

Each week during the SEC football season, Jefferson-Pilot Sports will highlight a representative of the 2005 SEC Football Good Works Team. Student-Athletes earn SEC Good Works Team recognition for their community service and campus activities. The SEC sponsors 16 Good Works Teams during the season, including one for each sport in the SEC, combining the indoor and outdoor track & field and cross country teams into one unit.
