Nov. 21, 2017

OXFORD, Miss. – For the second consecutive year, the Southeastern Conference has invited both current and former student-athletes from its member institutions to participate in the SEC Career Tour, with Rebel football’s Javon Patterson and softball’s Alex Schneider representing Ole Miss.

The SEC Career Tour, which will lead up to the SEC Football Championship Game, is scheduled for Nov. 28-30 in Atlanta, Georgia. It will be the first time participating in the tour for Patterson, while Schneider will be making her second appearance after participating in the inaugural event a year ago.

The group is scheduled to visit the headquarters and meet with executives and talent acquisition staff at several corporations in the Atlanta area including CNN/Turner Broadcasting System, Mercedes-Benz Corporate, the Atlanta Braves organization and Delta Airlines. 

Also included on the agenda is a dinner with SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey, presentations from former SEC student-athletes Josh Foliart and Beatriz Travalon, an outing at Top Golf, and a visit with children at the Boys & Girls Club of America. The goal of the career tour is to provide exposure for SEC student-athletes who are seeking career opportunities in various fields.

Heading into Thursday’s season-finale in the Egg Bowl at Mississippi State, Patterson has started 29 games in his three years at Ole Miss, including every game over the past two seasons.

Entering her senior campaign, Schneider has appeared in 153 games during her Rebel career, making 95 starts. The Southlake, Texas native is an Ole Miss SAAC Executive Officer and is also a SAAC representative at the conference level.
