The SEC coaches voted on individual season awards for 2019, and in what was likely an easy choice, Alabama’s Jaylen Waddle was honored as Special Teams Player of the Year.
The sophomore led the nation in punt return average with a stellar 24.9 yards per attempt and a touchdown. That average was a full four yards ahead of the second best number. For whatever reason he didn’t return many kickoffs, but averaged 38 yards per return on those and ran back the touchdown against Auburn.
The rest of the awards are listed below.
