USC Quarterback Mo Hasan Named To AFCA Good Works Team
LOS ANGELES — USC senior quarterback Mo Hasan has been named to the 22-player Allstate AFCA Good Works Team for his commitment to community service
Hasan runs a non-profit organization called Second Spoon that regularly distributes extra food from the student-athletes' training table to the homeless, doing so first in Nashville and Miami and now in Los Angeles. He delivers it in the Hunger ReliefMobile, a converted Fed Ex truck.
He is assisted in the food delivery by some of his USC teammates. This Sunday, they will deliver food left over from this Saturday's USC-Oregon State game at the Coliseum to the homeless on L.A.'s Skid Row.
Players on the Good Works Team, and their non-profits of choice, will benefit from a $1 million investment from Allstate, as permitted by new NCAA Name Image Likeness (NIL) legislation. The compensation financially empowers these student-athletes who serve their communities and their personal community service initiatives.
Hasan transferred to USC in 2020 after playing two seasons (2018 and 2019) at Vanderbilt. He started once at Vandy, leading the Commodores to a victory.
He did not see action last year at USC as he was sidelined most of the season with a leg injury. He was set to compete for the No. 2 quarterback job at USC this year, but he tore knee ligaments in 2021 spring practice and will be sidelined this season.
