Alabama’s Fitzpatrick Doing Good Works
Alabama junior defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick has been named to the Allstate American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Good Works Team Nominee List announced today.
Fitzpatrick is among 76 players from Football Bowl Subdivision nominated for this year’s team. Eleven of the nominees will make up the 2017 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team.
Fitzpatrick has been a team leader in the community and on campus. He has given his time to several groups in his two years with the football program, including the YMCA, TAP, Inc. and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, mentoring at-risk youth in the Tuscaloosa area. Most recently, he spent his spring break with a group of Alabama student-athletes as part of an FCA mission trip that did relief work in San Jose, Costa Rica. On the field, Fitzpatrick is the leader of the Crimson Tide secondary after a pair of standout seasons in his first two years in Tuscaloosa. He has returned four interceptions for touchdowns during his career to set the Alabama all-time mark for pick-sixes.
