UA punter Chris Palic has been named one of 11 members of the 2000 American Football Coaches Association Division I-A Good Works Team.

Palic, a junior from Los Angeles, has spent numerous hours in the past several years speaking at local schools and non-profit organizations to underscore the dangers of substance abuse, handling peer pressure, setting and achieving goals and understanding the importance of an education.

He also works in cooperation with the Tucson Police Department's gang resistance project and is involved in church activities as a lay person who can administer communion to those unable to leave their homes.

Palic, meantime, has been consistent as UA's punter and helped keep UA strong in relative change-of-possession field position with a team figure of 36.3 net yards.

"The Good Works Team attempts to recognize those student-athletes who go above and beyond in service to others," AFCA Executive Director Grant Teaff says.

"The AFCA is proud to honor those who have a positive impact in their communities."

The AFCA annually names 11-man good Works teams for both Division I-A and for all other divisions combined.
