PERU – Peru State senior quarterback Dan Boshart, a two-year letter winner, is among 169 nominee for the 2018 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, an honor recognizing student-athletes who demonstrate a unique dedication to community service and desire to make a positive impact on the lives around them and show tremendous perseverance as well as the ability to overcome personal struggles and come out victorious against all odds.
Boshart is the only football player represented from the Heart of America Athletic Conference (Heart). In addition, he is only one of three Nebraskans on the list. Vince Beardsley of Concordia University and Freedom Akimoladun of the University of Nebraska are the other two other Nebraska football players on the list.
He is one of many Bobcat football student-athletes who have been actively involved on campus and has a long list of academic and athletic achievements.
The final roster of 22 award recipients and honorary head coach will be unveiled in September.
Former Bobcat Gunnar Orcutt was among the final 22 award recipients and represented Peru State at the Sugar Bowl last season.
