WKU junior forward Justin Johnson was named a 2017 Allstate NABC Good Works Team nominee on Wednesday morning.

The Allstate NABC Good Works Team recognizes players at all levels of college basketball whose charitable involvement and altruistic acts stand out amongst all other student-athletes participating in the sport.

Johnson, a Hazard, Ky., native, has been active in the community since he arrived on The Hill.

The standout post player has made mission trips to China and Belize the last two summers with the Sports Reach program, and he’s also volunteered at Bowling Green Retirement Village and the Boys & Girls Club.

Johnson is one of 181 players nominated for the NABC honor. The final 10-member team will be announced in February.
