Hoop Group Alumni Named to Good Works Team

Good Works Team selection – Steve Weidlich

The Hoop Group has impacted the sport of basketball in many ways over the years. In this space we will provide some updates on some of the high school accomplishments of a small percentage of the great many successful Hoop Group Alumni!

“Dreams Do Come True”

Allstate Insurance Company, the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) announced the 20 student-athletes who have been named to the 2017 Allstate NABC and WBCA Good Works Teams® .

Congratulations to the Hoop Group Alumni who were selected to the NABC Good Works Team.

The two Hoop Group alumni honored are:

Sabri Thompson   Sr.   Northwestern Louisiana   Division 1

Steven Weidlich  Sr.  Susquehanna   Division 3

While exceptional student-athletes are often rewarded for their competitive achievements, this award shines a light on 20 young men and women for the things they accomplish off the court.  The Allstate NABC and WBCA Good Works Teams® are each comprised of 10 student-athletes – five from NCAA® Division I, and five from NCAA Divisions II, III and the NAIA.

“Allstate is thrilled to be joining the NABC and WBCA for a fifth consecutive year to highlight the remarkable displays of character demonstrated by student-athletes around the country,” said Thomas Clarkson, president of the west territory for Allstate Insurance Company and a member of the 2017 NABC and WBCA Good Works Teams® selection panels. “We are proud to be a part of a program that places such high value on altruism and community service, both of which are intrinsic to Allstate’s mission.” In addition to dedicating countless hours to their studies and athletics, the members of this year’s team have spent their limited free time bettering communities all over the world and demonstrating a strong commitment to improving the lives of others.
