Stinchcomb Named to AFCA Good Works Team

<b>ATHENS - </b>University of Georgia junior offensive tackle <b>Jon Stinchcomb</b> of Lilburn has been named one of 11 Division I-A players from throughout the country named to the 2001 American Football Coaches Association Good Works Team.

The team is designed to recognize college football players for their commitment to community service. Since the Good Works Team's first selection in 1992, Georgia and Nebraska have each had seven players named to the team--more than any other school in the country.

"It says a lot about the character of these young men that they can find the time to devote themselves to the community," said AFCA Executive Director Grant Teaff. "It is our pleasure to honor these student-athletes for all they have done."

Stinchcomb, a graduate of Parkview High School, has been active in a variety of community service projects including the Barrow Elementary School Reading Program, Special Olympics volunteer, Athens/Clarke County Summer Youth Program, St. Mary's Hospital Visitation Program, Food Bank of Northeast Georgia, and the Mentor Program.

Stinchcomb follows his brother, Matt, who was named to the team in both 1997 and '98.

Previous Georgia players named to the AFCA Good Works Team include OT Alec Millen, 1992; LB Travis Jones, 1993; QB Brian Smith, 1995; OT Matt Stinchcomb, 1997; OT Matt Stinchcomb, 1998; RB Brett Millican, 2000.
