  Allstate and the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) are proud to announce University of Kentucky offensive tackle Landon Young as the 2019 AFCA Good Works Team captain. Young was one of 22 college football players named to the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team earlier this season in recognition for his commitment to giving back off the field. Allstate encouraged college football fans to vote for the player they found most deserving of the team captain title and Young rose to the top. Young gives back to the local veterinary clinic, visits with nursing home residents, volunteers at Lexington's Hope Center and assists with yard work for local church members.

In May of 2019, he traveled to Ethiopia and worked in orphanages, distributing care packages and mentoring the youth in the community. "Hearing stories like Landon's remind us of all that is good in this sport, and Allstate is proud to highlight his story on the prominent platform it deserves," said John O'Donnell, president of Allstate's Western Territory. "It has been incredible to watch the college football community rally around the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team each season and embrace these outstanding young men." In September, Young was surprised with his Allstate AFCA Good Works Team trophy during a regularly scheduled visit with the residents at Cambridge Place Nursing Home. Young is Kentucky's fifteenth player to be named to the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team and the school's first to be named Good Works Team captain in the history of the program. - American Football Coaches Association
