The 2019 SEC Football Media Days start next week and Gators coach Dan Mullen will be joined by quarterback Feleipe Franks, running back Lamical Perine and defensive lineman Jabari Zuniga.

The SEC office announced the full list of players attending the four-day media festival on Wednesday, which runs Monday through Thursday in Hoover, Ala. The Gators will attend the event Monday, July 15, along with LSU and Missouri.

This marks the first time since 2016 that Florida will appear on the first day at the event.

SEC Network and ESPN will once again be on site to bring SEC Media Days to a national audience.

A day after the conclusion of the 2019 Southeastern Conference Media Days (Friday, July 19), the media in Hoover, Ala. will predict their selections for All-SEC teams and reveal the how the 2019 standings will look at the end of the season.

Just seven times since 1992 has the predicted champion at SEC Media Days proceeded to win the SEC Championship.

  1. to be at the top, according to the new york yankees mental skills coach, a player must be socially dominant, intense, focused, and then have an extra option or two to beat the other players that also have a lot of the same traits. coaching gets you the plan, and you must execute the plan, accept the result can be a little random sometimes, and in doing so you can be the best. I like all 3 of our guys in this area. O line is shaky, but because franks can run, it wont be 2017 all over again. cant wait for the miami game to see if i am right.

  2. i found the mental skills comments from a favorite of mine, sam walker, that is sports editor of the wall street journal. he has an interesting book about captains, leadership, and a content heavy twitter account, where he introduces, often his own competitors btw, you to others who go deeper into things. i couldnt find a book , but i predict there will be one.
