ATLANTA -- Georgia Tech's KeShun Freeman was named to the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team Thursday because of his continual work in the community.
The AFCA Good Works Team is made up of student athletes who volunteer in the community and help others when they are not on the football field or studying.
Freeman will be honored at the Allstate Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1 in New Orleans. If he is voted captain of the Good Works Team, he will be honored during the Home Depot ESPNU College Football Awards Show in December.
The junior defensive end from LaGrange, Ga. has volunteered at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, built houses for local families with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, volunteered as a counselor a youth football camps, and organized other athletes to participate in the opening ceremony of the Georgia Special Olympics Winter Games.
The 20-year-old was first inspired to help the community, specifically children, after his younger brother struggled with health issues. Freeman is a chemistry major, and is studying for a career in pediatric anesthesiology following his football career.
Freeman has started in 26 consecutive games for Georgia Tech. Last season, he made 44 tackles, four tackles for loss and two sacks. He has made three stops in two games this season.
