They're also outstanding in front of an audience and they're leaders of our team. That's our team offensive captain and our team defensive captain.”
McLaurin perhaps isn't as recognizable as Fitzgerald and Green, but he too has earned his chance to go to SEC Media Days. McLaurin had six interceptions last season to tie an MSU single-season record. Martin is hopeful
McLaurin's appearance today serves to introduce him to anyone not yet aware of how good he has been and could potentially be.
“Mark is a senior that led the SEC in interceptions last year, but a lot of people still
don't know who he is and they need to because he's a big-time player,” Martin said. “Bringing him to this stage really puts a name to a face – especially with how he ended the year as the MVP in the bowl game and
intercepting Lamar Jackson three times and ending the year with six interceptions.
"People need to know and be aware of who he is. There are a lot of people on the team that people know who they are. People need to know
Mark McLaurin and they will when this season ends.”
MSU's turn at SEC Media Days begins early this morning. Moorhead speaks in the main room beginning at 8 a.m. Coverage will be provided on SEC Network.
