Florida State tight end Camren McDonald is among 22 student-athletes named to the 2021 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team for dedication to community service.
McDonald founded a non-profit in 2019, prior to current name, image and likeness legislation, in order to serve the community. His organization helps feed, clothe and comfort the homeless and less fortunate with pizza deliveries, hygiene kits, clothing and blankets.
The redshirt junior from Long Beach, Calif., earned Florida State football’s Humanitarian Award in 2020. He used the early days of the pandemic to become a 200-hour certified yoga instructor and has conducted free in-person sessions in the park and on Florida State’s intramural fields, as well as virtually for everyone interested in joining.
McDonald is the seventh Seminole to earn a spot on the Good Works Team, joining Mavin Saunders (2017), Alec Eberle (2016), Christian Ponder (2010), Sam Cowart (1996), Wayne Messum (1995) and Corey Fuller (1994).
Allstate is making a $1 million pledge toward the Good Works Team as well as their non-profits of choice. This is made possible by the new NIL rules. (It is not yet clear how much McDonald or his foundation will receive.)
