“I’ve been over here a bunch actually,” Fromm said. “I had a class that came over here. It’s something I want to do, to impact kids’ lives. I love every minute of doing it.”
Fromm also stays pretty busy majoring in finance at UGA and, of course, serving the Georgia football team as the starting quarterback. The Bulldogs are 30-6 with Fromm at the controls of the offense. He has made 35 consecutive starts.
This season, Fromm has completed 70.7 percent of his passes for 1,406 yards and 9 touchdowns. Georgia (6-1, 3-1 SEC) is ranked No. 10 as it prepares for a matchup with No. 7 Florida (7-1, 4-1) on Nov. 2 in Jacksonville.
Fromm is on pace to become UGA’s all-time leader in career pass efficiency. To date, he has completed 66.7 percent of his passes. He ranks among the school’s top five quarterbacks in touchdown passes (63), yards and completions.
But it’s for what he does off the field that Fromm found himself the center of attention Wednesday.
“During his time at the University of Georgia, Jake has spent countless hours working in our community with local organizations to help make this a better place for all of us to live,” Christian said. “He’s spent a lot of time with Extra Special People, with individuals with disabilities and their families, with children with cancer. He really embodies what it means to give back.”
Georgia place-kicker Rodrigo Blankenship was named to the Allstate Good Works Team in a similar presentation at Barrow Elementary last year.
