PORTALES — Eastern New Mexico University senior wide receiver Jesse Poku has been nominated for the 2010 Allstate American Football Coaches Association Good Works team, based on performance on the field and community contributions off it.

Poku, from Murphy, Texas, was among the leaders in receptions and yards receiving in NCAA Division II last season and earned first-team All-Lone Star Conference South Division honors. In three seasons at ENMU, he has 127 catches for 1,526 yards and 15 tourndowns.

Off the field, he has worked a yearly football camp in Portales, participated in school reading programs such as Head Start, and helped with the cleanup after a tornnado in Clovis in the spring of 2007.
