This is relatively minor when compared to the other defensive line news that broke on Wednesday, but Pitt defensive end David Durham is a nominee for the 2014 Allstate American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Good Works Team.
The team will be comprised of 11 FBS players and Durham was one of nearly 100 players chosen. Additionally, 11 more will be selected out of another pool of FCS, Division II, III, and NAIA players. After 11 players are selected from the two categories, fans will be able to vote for the captain of the team.
The team honors those for their work off the field with charitable organizations. ESPN highlighted Durham's off-field efforts recently. The defensive end has done some volunteer work for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and has also hosted in youth football clinics and recently went on Pitt's trip to Haiti on a missions trip.
