Replogle is one of the most active Hoosiers in the community. As a member of the team’s Leadership Council in 2010, he was instrumental in setting up two of the team’s largest initiatives. The team visited Riley’s Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis, Ind., on April 21, 2009, and again on April 20, 2010. The entire football program went to the hospital to visit with every patientl, distribute gifts and lift spirits by talking to the patients and their families. The Indiana football program is the only program to visit the hospital as an entire team and Replogle was a leader in organizing this initiative.

The second major community outreach program involved the Boys & Girls Club. For the past four seasons, Replogle and the team have hosted members of the Bloomington Boys & Girls Club at Memorial Stadium. Eight activity stations are set up around the stadium, as youngsters and players alike take part in the tug of war, a football hand-off relay, a tackling station, a football equipment relay, an end zone celebration station, a home run derby, the sponge toss and a kicking station. After the event, kids get autographs from the team in addition to taking photos. Among his other community work he has volunteered with the Monroe County Youth Football League, searched for missing Indiana student Lauren Spierer and participated in Read Across America. Replogle is also a nominee for the 2012 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, which recognizes a select group of college football players committed to making a difference in their communities.
