Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez received recognition for his work off the field, as he was nominated for the 2021 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team. Martinez is one of 109 student-athletes across all levels nominated in 2021.
Martinez has been active in the Huskers’ Life Skills program, and was one of the leaders in coordinating the Nebraska Football Road Race, which featured nearly 750 participants and raised money for pediatric brain cancer research at the Buffet Cancer Center at UNMC in mid June. In addition, he has also volunteered his time for a Day of Service, Make-a-Wish, Husker Heroes and local hospital visits throughout his career.
The final 22-member team will be announced later this fall. After the final team members are announced in September, fans can cast their vote for this year’s Allstate AFCA Good Works Team captain through the official page on ESPN.com. Fans can use #GoodWorksTeam on their social media channels to join the conversation throughout the season.
