Alabama Southpaw Named Pre-Season All-SEC Honoree
Alabama sophomore Alton Davis II was named second-team All-SEC by the leagues head coaches, per a Alabama Athletics press release.
Alabama was also picked to finish fourth in the SEC west and eight overall in the conference.
In a standout freshman campaign, Davis II established himself as the Tide's main closer, throwing 33.2 innings while racking up a team-high and second-in-SEC eight saves. The southpaw sustained a 2.76 ERA throughout SEC play last season.
The Hueytown, Ala., native pitched his way to a spot on the 2023 Freshman All-SEC team and NCBWA Second Team Freshman All-American.
Davis II also earned a spot on the SEC First-Year Academic Honor Roll in 2023.
Davis II headlines a pitching staff that faced significant turnover last off-season. The 6-5 pitcher will be the go-to closer on a staff consisting of Ben Hess, Riley Quick, Aidan Moza, and transfer Coulson Buchanan, amongst others.
