STARKVILLE, Miss. – Mississippi State goalkeeper CJ Winship values the opportunity to give back to the community, and her dedication to service has earned her a place on the SEC’s 2013 Community Service Team.

Winship, who was selected to be team co-captain during the season, received the honor for the second-straight year.

“We are proud of CJ that the SEC has recognized her service to the community,” MSU coach Aaron Gordon said. “CJ has been a tremendous leader to our team on and off the field, and she is such a great representative of Mississippi State University to the people in our community.”

Last spring Winship assisted in baking goods to benefit Relay For Life. She has also been a regular speaker at the Attala County Library for their Literacy Awareness Week.

Since joining the Mississippi State soccer team, the Ridgeland, Miss., native has been an FCA huddle leader at Starkville High School and a speaker to students at Starkville Academy.

“I’m extremely honored to be selected to the SEC Community Service Team again this season,” Winship said. “We appreciate how much our community supports us as Mississippi State student-athletes, so anytime we can give back to them is very special to us.”

Winship, who will forego her final season to begin pursuit of a law enforcement career, gave a devotional at the Jones County Correctional Facility and participated in the MSU M-Club’s Breakfast of Champions at local schools.

In addition to sharing her experiences with the soccer teams at Warren Central High School and West Jones High School, Winship taught youth players the sport through the Bulldogs’ summer camps.
