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.
