[su_spacer size=”20″] SEC will begin a new initiative at SEC media days this month. Each conference member will send, at least, one student-athlete who has a compelling story outside the round of athletics. Malcolm Mitchell will represent UGA.

These student-athletes are the chapters of a larger book that is the story of the Southeastern Conference.”
