Drake University senior guard Zach Bosch made his weekly visit to volunteer at the Veterans Affairs Hospital Friday afternoon, but it turned out to be anything but his usual visit.
Bosch, who has helped create a spearhead a program in which Drake football players visit with veterans and facility, was suprised by his teammates, coaches, VA staff and patients with the presentation of his AFCA/Allstate Good Works Team Award.
Earlier in the fall, Bosch was named to the prestigious team that recognizes 22 total student-athletes, 11 from the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) and 11 combined from the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS), Division II, Division III and NAIA classifications which consists of more than 5,000 student-athletes. One of the sport's premier service honors, the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team shines a spotlight on the positive, off-the-field impact that a select group of student-athletes has on their communities.
