Cal's Schneider honored for community work

Cal senior kicker Tom Schneider has been named to the American Football Coaches Association Good Works Team, it was announced Wednesday.

The team recognizes college football players who are actively involved and committed to working with a charitable organization, service group or involved in other community service activities. Candidates have to display sincere concern and reliability, while also having made a favorable impression on the organizations with which they are involved.

Schneider, a candidate this year for the Lou Groza Award as the nation's top kicker, has been very active in the community throughout his Cal career. Among his many activities have been running in a Relay for Life marathon to raise money for cancer awareness, prevention and research; and organizing teammates to partake in the Read Across America project at Buena Vista Elementary school. He has also participated in a city works project helping clean up parts of Berkeley and volunteers time for Surf Riders Foundation, an organization which raises money to help clean up California's public beaches.
