Congratulations to junior tight end Greg Hart, who has just been elected Chair of the SEC Football Leadership Council. Hart and vice chair Danny Etling (LSU) were selected by a vote of their peers at a meeting of the Council at SEC headquarters in Birmingham. They will attend a portion of the meeting of the SEC’s Athletics Directors in March and the Conference’s Spring Meetings in May and June.
“These talented young men are proven leaders on the field and among their teammates,” said Misty Brown, SEC Director of Student-Athlete Engagement. “They took special interest to engage in conversation about topics that were important to them. They came prepared and ready to provide feedback on issues related to recruiting, practice and career preparation. We were extremely impressed with our football leadership council and look forward to continuing to work with all of our councils to identify ways that we can remain innovative in enhancing the student-athlete experience.”
The councils, which consist of one representative from each institution, serve as a conduit of communication to the conference office on issues related to student-athlete experience and student-athlete wellness.
“It’s an honor to represent Kentucky football on the SEC Football Leadership Council and it’s very humbling to be chosen by my peers to be the chair,” Hart said. I’m excited about this opportunity that we have to come to together and discuss concerns and topics with the people who make the decisions in the SEC. I want to thank Commissioner Sankey and everyone else involved for creating this group. The SEC’s motto of ‘It Just Means More’ is really true. They really do care how we feel and it’s cool to be a part of this.”
Congrats, Greg. Keep making us proud.
