ATHENS, Ga. --- Georgia soccer senior goalkeeper Callie Corbin Langford has been named to the 2013 SEC Soccer Community Service Team, the league office announced Tuesday. The Southeastern Conference sponsors community service teams for all 21 league sponsored sports, highlighting student-athletes from each institution who give back to their community through superior service efforts.
Langford has been heavily involved in community service in Athens and around the world during her tenure at Georgia. In addition to working at UGA’s youth camps, she has served as a goalkeepers coach for Clarke Central High School in Athens. She tutors inner city children in the community, while also heading up the team’s Relay for Life and Special Olympics outreach efforts.
The Tallahassee, Fla., native traveled to the Dominican Republic on behalf of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), where she put on instructional clinics with children in local orphanages. Additionally, she has visited the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, and Mexico on mission trips throughout her playing career.
In the classroom, Langford is a Dean’s List student and an Athletic Director’s Honor Roll and SEC Academic Honor Roll selection. Following the 2012 season, she was awarded the team’s Sportsmanship Award, and after graduation this fall, she plans to travel to Perth, Australia, as an assistant coach and teacher working with refugee children.
Langford and the Bulldogs will play in the SEC Championships quarterfinals on Wednesday, taking on South Carolina at 3:30 p.m. ET in Orange Beach, Ala.
