2019 SEC Media Days are soon to be inflicted upon us, and the full list of team representatives is out.
Attending on behalf of Texas A&M will be junior quarterback Kellen Mond (naturally), junior defensive lineman Justin Madubuike (excellent choice), and, of course, senior punter Braden Mann.
Mann is not the first Punter U punter to make the trek to the fabled carnival of media lights. Drew Kaser repped for coach Kevin Sumlin in 2014, and cut quite a dashing figure:
Mann is coming off a mammoth season, where he was a first-team All-American, won the Ray Guy award, and shattered the NCAA record books by averaging 51.0 yards per punt on 50 attempts. Despite all this, he’s routinely being left off meaningless preseason “top 100” lists like the one below:

Best of luck at Media Days to all three representatives, and hopefully someone from the media will accidentally talk to a punter again.
