SEC commissioner Greg Sankey introduced new student-athlete leadership councils in 2016 for football, as well as men’s and women’s basketball. The aim is to provide student-athletics with more opportunities to “engage with campus leaders and conference office staff.”
The council consists of one representative from each SEC institution and will hold its first meeting at SEC headquarters in Birmingham, Ala. on Feb. 4.
The student-athletes comprising the SEC football student-athlete leadership council are Alabama’s Christian Miller, Arkansas’ Rawleigh Williams, Auburn’s Marcus Davis, Florida’s Martez Ivey, Georgia’s Aaron Davis, Kentucky’s Greg Hart, LSU’s Danny Etling, Ole Miss Shea Patterson, Mississippi State Gerri Green, Missouri’s Nate Brown, Allen-Williams, Tennessee’s Micah Abernathy, Texas A&M’s Christin Kirk and Vanderbilt’s Ralph Webb.
