LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WIVB) - Fred Lee never saw it coming. After giving an inspirational speech to students at Starpoint High School today, Lee found out he was one of just eleven FBS players named to the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team.
The honor goes to college football players who make a significant effort to give back in the community.
Lee, a senior wide receiver at UB, was clearly shocked by the award.
“I’ve been involved in the community all summer and doing so much work and losing countless hours of sleep to do this,” Lee said. “To know that people recognize me and that people actually care about the things I do means a lot when you put a lot of time and energy into being a positive person. To be honored like this is a blessing.”
As part of the Good Works Team, he will be honored again during halftime of the Sugar Bowl in January.
