Tribue a Good Works Team nominee

Temple right guard Wayne Tribue was recently nominated for the Allstate American Football Coaches Association Good Works Team.

The 11-player Football Bowl Championship Subdivision team will be selected next month.

The 6-foot-4, 324-pound senior will join former Owls Yazid Jackson (2003), Alex Derenthal (2007) and Amara Kamara (2010) in a select group if he makes the team.

Good Works Team members are honored for community service.

A strong candidate for the award, Tribue is an advocate at Temple for bone marrow donor awareness.  The York native also spoke to parents and youth at the “One Child Saved” event. And he volunteered at the AWANA Youth Group, the Jahri Evans Football Camp and the Ronald McDonald House.

A talented player, Tribue has made 18 career starts at left guard and two at center. He switched to right guard after last season.
