Cal Poly defensive tackle Grosz nominated for work off the field

Cal Poly defensive tackle Sullivan Grosz is one of a record 150 nominees for the 2013 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team. The award recognizes a select group of college football players, who have made a commitment to enriching the lives of others and contributed to the greater good of their communities.

The 6-4, 295 pound senior made 58 tackles as a junior last fall and led the Mustangs with 13.5 tackles for lost yardage and 6 sacks. He also racked up 5 quarterback hurries, forced 3 fumbles and recovered 2 fumbles. He earned All-Big Sky Conference Second Team honors last fall and earlier this week landed on the 2013 All-Big Sky Preseason Team.

Among the community activities Grosz has participated in include sponsoring a boy with autism for the Walk for Autism, spending a night at a local homeless shelter to feed and take care of the homeless, and volunteering at the San Luis Obispo County Special Olympics. He has also sponsored kids in need of surgery in underprivileged countries as part of the Big West coin drive.

Grosz also serves on Block P, Cal Poly's lettermen's club.

The final roster of 22 award recipients, 11 from the FBS-level and 11 from the FCS/Division II/Division III/NAIA, will be announced in September.
