OXFORD, Miss. – Rebel baseball and softball players Tanner Bailey and Brittany Broome have been nominated for the Brad Davis Southeastern Conference Community Service Post-Graduate Scholarship, the league office announced Tuesday.

Twenty-eight SEC student-athletes – one male and one female from each of the SEC’s 14 institutions - were nominated for the scholarship.

The overall recipients of the Brad Davis SEC Community Service Post-Graduate Scholarship will be released on April 4. The Davis Award recipients each receive a $10,000 post-graduate scholarship, provided by the SEC.  The 26 remaining male and female finalists for the award will also receive a $5,000 post-graduate scholarship.

The SEC Community Service Award is named for Brad Davis, who succumbed to cancer on March 2, 2006. He had been a member of the SEC staff since 1988, first serving as an assistant commissioner until 1994 when he was promoted to associate commissioner.

The award recipients are chosen by a committee of Faculty Athletics Representatives from the 14 SEC institutions and are honored at the SEC Spring Meetings in Sandestin, Fla., on May 30.

Last year’s Davis Award recipients were LSU’s Cullen Doody and Alabama’s Leigh Gilmore, both cross country and track & field student-athletes.
