Congrats to Jordan Morgan for being one of ten men's college basketball players named to the Allstate NABC Good Works Team.
University of Michigan men's basketball graduate student Jordan Morgan (Detroit, Mich./University of Detroit Jesuit) is one of 10 men's college basketball student-athletes named the Allstate NABC Good Works Team, as announced by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), today (Tuesday, Feb. 11).
In its second year, this preeminent community service honor recognizes college basketball players who have made a commitment to improving their communities and the lives of others. A total of 117 nominations were submitted and then voted on by a panel comprised of former coaches, student-athletes and media members, including former Duke University student-athlete, two-time NCAA champion and seven-time NBA All-Star Grant Hill. The team is comprised of 10 student-athletes; five from the NCAA Division I and five from NCAA Divisions II, III and the NAIA.
In addition to Morgan's contributions to the Michigan basketball program over the past four-plus years, he has also shown the ability to excel in the classroom while giving back to others.
Morgan has worked with Mott's "From the Heart" Program, spoke for Wines Elementary Run-a-thon on the importance of fitness, visited Joshua's Lemonade stand in Detroit, worked clinics for high school boys, high school girls and coaches in Ivory Coast, visited an orphanage in Ivory Coast, spoke at Brighton Community Bible Church youth group on faith, spoke at Huron Hills Church on faith in sports and life, currently works with Big Brothers Big Sisters to promote education and helps with Meals on Wheels delivering lunches to the community.
