Alabama Football names player representatives for SEC Media Days

Alabama football coach Kalen DeBoer has selected quarterback Jalen Milroe, offensive lineman Tyler Booker and defensive back Malachi Moore to represent the Crimson Tide next week at SEC Media Days in Dallas. The players representing each team in the SEC were announced by the league on Monday.

Players are typically selected not only for their performance on the field, but also for their ability to represent the program in front of hundreds of media members.

Milroe led the Crimson Tide to an SEC championship and a College Football Playoff appearance last year. He overcame a slow start to the season to win key games against Tennessee, LSU and a last-minute thriller at Auburn to give UA a chance at the playoffs. Alabama beat Georgia in the SEC title game. Booker was one of Alabama’s best offensive linemen at guard and is considered a leader in the UA locker room. Moore has experience at safety and nickelback and played effectively in a talented UA secondary last year. The trio were among the first established veterans to announce in January that they would not transfer following the resignation of legendary coach Nick Saban.

DeBoer, Milroe, Booker and Moore will speak to reporters on Wednesday, along with coaches and players from Florida, Mississippi State and Texas. Last year, Alabama was represented by offensive tackle JC Latham, cornerback Kool-Aid McKinstry and linebacker Dallas Turner, all of whom were selected among the first 50 picks in the 2024 NFL Draft.

The Crimson Tide open the season on August 31 at Bryant-Denny Stadium against Western Kentucky.
