OSU football: Chuba Hubbard named to Allstate AFCA Good Works Team
STILLWATER — Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard was named to the 2020 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team on Wednesday.
Hubbard was selected to the team after he founded Your Life, Your Choice, a nonprofit organization that helps children and adolescents who face difficult circumstances.
He also became a prominent figure in player empowerment this summer when he threatened to not attend team activities after coach Mike Gundy was pictured in a T-shirt of One America News Network, a far-right, pro-Donald Trump cable news network rated by Media Bias/Fact Check as being "not a credible news source.” Hubbard is also a strong voice in social justice issues.
Hubbard, who was the nation’s leading rusher last season, has also received the OSU Academic Achievement Award twice, was on the Dean’s Honor Roll last fall and holds a grade-point average better than 3.0.
