Seniors to Represent Auburn at Media Days

Lee Ziemba

SEC football moves into high gear this month as Auburn players and their head coach participate in SEC Medial Days.

Auburn, Ala.--A trio of seniors will join Coach Gene Chizik as Auburn's representatives for the 2010 SEC Football Media Days.

Offensive tackle Lee Ziemba, middle linebacker Josh Bynes and safety Aairon Savage will make the trip to Birmingham for the annual event.

Auburn's representatives will be involved in day three of the three-day event that features all 12 SEC head football coaches and three key players per team, up from the traditional two in previous years.

Ziemba, 6-8, 318 pounds from Rogers, Ark., came to Auburn as a high school All-American and has started every game for the Tigers the past three years. A second team All-SEC pick by the league's coaches last year, in 2007 he was an SEC All-Freshman selection.

Josh Bynes is a key run stopper for the Tigers.

Bynes, 6-2, 236 from Lauderdale Lakes, Fla., heads into the 2010 season with a string of 21 consecutive starts. As a junior he led the Tigers in tackles with 104 stops, including 61 solos.

Aairon Savage, a 5-11, 198 safety from Albany, Ga., broke into the starting lineup in 2006 and became an All-SEC Freshman. He is back this year as a sixth-year senior after missing the past two seasons with a knee injury in 2008 and an Achilles tendon injury in 2009.

Aairon Savage is working on his masters degree at Auburn while preparing for the 2010 season.

SEC Media Days start on Wednesday, July 21 with Florida, Alabama, Mississippi State and Kentucky on the agenda.

On Thursday the attendees include Georgia, Arkansas, Vanderbilt and South Carolina.

Day three of the event includes Tennessee, LSU and Ole Miss in addition to Auburn.
