Nebraska senior wide receiver Mark LeFlore is one of 11 Division I-A players named to the 2005 American Football Coaches Association Good Works Team. LeFlore is the 10th Husker selected to the Good Works Team since its inception in 1992, a total that leads the nation.

The Good Works Team is comprised of two 11-player teams, a Division I-A team and a combined team from Divisions I-AA, II, III and the NAIA, and honors players for their dedication and commitment to community service. LeFlore is one of four Big 12 players on the Good Works Team, the most honorees of any conference.

LeFlore joins a prestigious group of Huskers who have previously made the AFCA Goods Works Team, most recently place-kicker Sandro DeAngelis in 2003. Other previous Husker Good Works honorees include Troy Branch (LB, 1992, 1993); Donta Jones (OLB, 1994); Aaron Graham (C, 1995); Jared Tomich (RE, 1996); Dan Alexander (IB, 1999); Patrick Kabongo (DT, 2001) and Troy Hassebroek (WB, 2002).

LeFlore is an active member in the Lincoln and Nebraska community, who was named to Nebraska's 2005 Brook Berringer Citizenship Team for his efforts. LeFlore has volunteered his time at numerous activities, including the Village Manor Retirement Center, Children's Discovery Center, the Malone Community Center for Youth, the Omaha Children's Hospital, Lincoln's St. Elizabeth's Hospital and local Special Olympics. LeFlore is the Community Outreach Officer for the Nebraska Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, a member of the Student-Athlete Minority group committed to degree completion and also speaks at numerous elementary schools.
