Peter Kazickas plays forward for the Hamilton College basketball team. Today he was selected as one of ten basketball players to make the 2014 Good Works Team. Players are nominated based on their community service work.

 Kazickas has traveled to Zimbabwe twice with the Hoops for Hope charity. His continued work here and abroad they say made him an exceptional candidate.

 "Everybody that knows Pete knows that he cares about others. I think that embodies the award that he received," says Adam Stockwell, coach.

"I've found that I've been in a position that I can help people and it feels great. I know that every time you help somebody both people are winning from that interaction. So just doing the little you can to bring a smile to someone's face has been important to me," says Kazickas.

Because he won the award, Kazickas will have the opportunity to attend the NCAA Final Four in Texas where he and the other recipients will participate in.
