St. Thomas senior quarterback Greg Kaiser is one of four Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference football players named to the 1999 Good Works Team sponsored by the American Football Coaches Association. Just 11 players were honored from nearly 1,000 football-playing universities in Division I-AA, II, III and NAIA, with another 11 honored from Division I.
Joining Kaiser were St. Olaf junior defensive back Aaron Douglas of Hutchinson; Bethel senior OL Chico Rowland of Minneapolis De LaSalle; and Hamline senior DL Nathan Schneeberger of Edgerton, Wis. The honorees were chosen solely on exceptional community service work and not for their on-field achievements.
Kaiser, who has a 3.87 GPA, has been a volunteer youth baseball coach for several summers, an officer in the campus Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and a volunteer tutor in the Economics Department at St. Thomas. He also has taken part in several community service projects with the UST football team.
It’s the third consecutive year the MIAC has had honorees — the 11-man 1998 Good Works Team included UST’s Mark Warder and Bethel’s Eric Runyan, while Augsburg’s Ted Schultz was honored in 1997.
