Fields Named To 2022 Good Works Team

Sep 19, 2022

NORTHBROOK, Ill. – Stanford fifth-year graduate transfer Patrick Fields was named to the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team on Monday. The 2022 roster features 22 players – just 11 from the Football Bowl Subdivision – and one head coach, honored for their outstanding contributions to their communities.
"For 31 years, the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team has reminded us how to use our position in life — whatever that may be — to lift up those around us," said Tim Tebow, two-time national champion, Heisman Trophy winner and 2009 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team member. "There are so many players across all levels of the game who use their platforms for good, and it is an inspiration to see the variety of ways these young men choose to help make our society better."
Fields has been active in the Stanford community since joining the Cardinal program from Oklahoma in January. He planned and executed a three-day mentorship and networking event prior to Juneteenth in his hometown of Tulsa, Okla. The event brought together high school and college students with black business owners, leaders and mentors, with another primary goal to teach the students about the college admissions process and financial resources available to them. Fields raised the funds to make all events during the three days free to those who attended and hopes to give out academic scholarships through the event in the future.
While at Oklahoma, Fields founded the Black Wall Street Scholarship, collaborating with the president of the OU National Black Alumni Association to establish an endowment with the purpose of providing scholarships for underrepresented and lower income students from inner-city Tulsa. In July of 2021, Fields founded and coordinated the Patrick Fields Back to School Bash and football camp for economically vulnerable elementary students in Tulsa. He is passionate about educating students, especially underrepresented students, about financial literacy, money management, credit and personal branding, and founded Town Business to do just that in Tulsa.
A two-time graduate of Oklahoma, Fields is enrolled in the management science and engineering master's program at Stanford. He is the third Cardinal in four seasons to be honored, and the fourth in six years. He joins Treyjohn Butler (2020), Connor Wedington (2019) and Harrison Phillips (2017). Additionally, Stanford's 2021 Wuerffel Trophy winner, Isaiah Sanders, was on the Good Works Team in 2019 while a senior at the Air Force Academy.
