K-State senior quarterback Collin Klein was named to the AFCA Good Works Team for his positive off-the-field contributions he's made in the community.

Kansas State announced senior quarterback Collin Klein has been named to the American Football Coaches Association's Good Works Team, an award that recognizes the positive, off-the-field impact that student-athletes make in their communities, according to a press release.

Wildcats fullback Victor Mann (2005) was the last Kansas State football player to be named to the team. Defensive back Tysyn Hartman was a candidate for the award last season.

The school noted Klein has been active in local church group activities throughout the Manhattan, Kan., community. He's been the keynote speaker at multiple Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) and other Christian meetings, according to Kansas State.

"The AFCA, its Board of Trustees and members are honored to partner with Allstate in announcing another great class of student-athletes for the 2012 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team," AFCA Executive Director Grant Teaff said. "These 22 student-athletes stand out from hundreds of other college football players who volunteer their time each week to make an impact on their teams and in their community."
