Posted: Updated:
NEW ORLEANS -

West Texas A&M University and former Calallen offensive lineman Dillon Vaughan was named to the 2017 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team earlier this season. The Good Works Team is one of the most prestigious college football awards that recognizes players for their good works off the field.

As part of the honor, Vaughan has been enjoying some time in New Orleans with the rest of the Good Works Team at the Allstate Sugar Bowl. He even got a chance to give back to the community with two-time national champion and Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow, and multi-nominated and award-winning pop band Imagine Dragons, as they helped refurbish the APEX Youth Center through the Allstate All Hands In program. .

Vaughan has made a positive impact through his ‘good works’ including:

  • Serving as the Help-A-Child chairperson on the S.A.G.E. (Students Assisting ‘n Good Endeavors) executive committee where he has helped with events such as the Fall Festival, Special Olympics basketball tournament, Easter Egg Hunt for elementary students in the community, Bikes for Tikes, Cookies with Santa for local children’s home, Dance Marathon for Children’s Miracle Network, Bingo Nights at The Connor House Nursing Home, Team Tatum Dodgeball Tournament and Work-A-Thon
  • Assisting in bracelet and concession sales, weekly bake sales and raffles to benefit Make-A-Wish
  • Speaking with elementary school students and campus alumni on behalf of the SAAC
  • Helping his family to host the Superhero Ball, benefitting an orphanage in Uganda through Children’s Hope Chest

    It has been ten years since Calallen became the first area high school to get artificial turf at its football stadium. Now, it's time to replace it thanks to a 40 million dollar plus bond issue that was passed by voters back in November. A new all weather track is also being installed at Phil Danaher Field. But it's just not athletics which benefits from the bond issue.
