The redshirt senior is among 14 student-athletes honored by the league for superior service efforts


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Alabama redshirt senior offensive lineman Joshua Casher has been named to the 2018 Southeastern Conference Football Community Service team, the league office announced Wednesday.


Casher is a three-time recipient of Alabama’s Derrick Thomas Community Service Award, which honors a deserving Crimson Tide football student-athlete for his work in the community. The Mobile, Ala., native was instrumental in Alabama Athletics choosing the Alberta Head Start program as the focus of its Community Unity Project, a department-wide initiative involving student-athletes, coaches and staff. Casher has given more than 200 hours of community service time in addition to serving as a mentor and role model for his teammates and fellow student-athletes.


The SEC names a community service team for each of its 21 league-sponsored sports, highlighting athletes from each school who give back to their communities through superior service efforts.
