BIRMINGHAM – LSU quarterback Danny Etling will join 13 other student-athletes from around the Southeastern Conference as part of the league’s first SEC Football Student-Athlete Leadership Council, the conference office announced.

 

The Council consists of one representative from each SEC institution, and the group will hold its first meeting at SEC headquarters in Birmingham Feb. 4.

 

“I consider it an honor to be selected as a member of the first Southeastern Conference Football Student- Athlete Leadership Council,” Etling said. “I am thankful to have the opportunity to represent my teammates and the great institution of Louisiana State University.

 

“I am looking forward to traveling to the SEC headquarters on February 4 to meet with other members of the council. I anticipate a healthy discussion on issues relating to the overall experience of student athletes.”

 

Etling just completed his first year with the Tigers, leading LSU to an 8-4 overall record and a No. 13 final national ranking. The Tigers capped their season with a 29-9 win over Louisville in the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl.

 

Etling, who earned Academic All-District honors, completed 160-of-269 passes for 2,123 yards and 11 touchdowns. Etling’s 2,123 passing yards ranks as the 14th-highest single-season total in school history.

 

SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey introduced new Student-Athlete Leadership Councils in 2016 for the sports of football and men’s and women’s basketball in which, in addition to the conference’s longstanding Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC), provide student-athletes with additional opportunities to engage with campus leaders and conference office staff.

 

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.

 

Joining Etling on the SEC Football Student-Athlete Leadership Council are: Christian Miller, Alabama; Rawleigh Williams, Arkansas; Marcus Davis, Auburn; Martez Ivey, Florida; Aaron Davis, Georgia; Greg Hart, Kentucky, Shea Patterson, Ole Miss; Gerri Green, Mississippi State; Nate Brown, Missouri; Bryson Allen-Williams, South Carolina; Micah Abernathy, Tennessee; Christian Kirk, Texas A&M; and Ralph Webb, Vanderbilt.
