One player from each league program will be represented in the first SEC Football Student-Athlete Leadership Council.
The league announced the council Tuesday afternoon with a list of the players chosen to represent each school. The council, which will hold its first meeting on Feb. 4 in Birmingham, is part of commissioner Greg Sankey’s initiative to “provide student-athletes with additional opportunities to engage with campus leaders and conference office staff.” Councils also were created in men’s and women’s basketball.
Here’s part of the release from the SEC:
The SEC Men’s and Women’s Basketball Leadership Council held its meeting in September, while the SEC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) gathered in Birmingham in July. The SAAC group recently participated in a career exploration tour in Atlanta during the week of the SEC Football Championship Game.
The councils serve as a conduit of communication to the conference office on issues related to student-athlete experience and student-athlete wellness. The groups also provide feedback on proposed rules governing the SEC and NCAA.
The full list of each program’s representative is below:
|Arkansas||Rawleigh Williams lll|
|Ole Miss||Shea Patterson|
|Mississippi State||Gerri Green|
|South Carolina||Bryson Allen-Williams|
|Texas A&M||Christian Kirk|
