Tired of hearing about athletes behaving badly? Then consider Bentley University quarterback Danny Guadagnoli a breath of fresh air.
Guadagnoli, a standout football, basketball, and baseball player at Framingham High, has been nominated for the 2013 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, which recognizes the community service work of college football players. Winners will be announced in September.
A 22-year-old redshirt junior who passed for 2,344 yards and 16 touchdowns last season, Guadagnoli said: “I’ve progressively gotten more involved with volunteer work in my time at Bentley, but you don’t do it with an award in mind.”
Since the spring Guadagnoli, along with several of his teammates at Bentley, has tried to make the day a little better for veterans at a Boston homeless shelter. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
