BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – Former Cocoa Tiger, and current University of Miami long snapper Clay James was among the players selected to the watch list for the 2021 AFCA Good Works Team.
Honorees for the Good Works team have stories of exemplary community service, alongside their academic dedication and impact on and off the field.
The Cocoa native leads the Hurricanes in community service hours and has spent his time working with the Grove Food Pantry in Coconut Grove, the Community Fridge Organization in Overtown, the Lotus House, the Miami Mission Homeless Shelter, and several other organizations.
A voting panel will select a 22-member team with players who demonstrate exceptional leadership qualities.
James, who has served as the team’s starting long snapper the past two seasons, helped the Hurricane excel on special teams last year.
Along with James, the Hurricanes featured the nation’s top special teams duo in 2020; Jose Borregales won the Lou Groza Award as the top kicker in FBS, while Lou Hedley was a finalist for the Ray Guy Award honoring the nation’s top punter.
James became the fifth Hurricane recognized with preseason honors.
