McFadden headlines SEC's top interviews
By ESPN.com staff
Auburn senior cornerback Walt McFadden has been presented with the “Good Guy” award by the East Alabama Auburn Beat Writers Association of America.
McFadden is the first recipient of the award, which recognizes a player who is consistently congenial and professional in his dealings with the media.
In other words, somebody who likes talking with the media and usually has something interesting to say.
I would agree that the local Auburn beat writers got this one right. McFadden was one of the better interviews in the SEC over the past couple of years. He was always engaging and had intelligent responses any time I spoke with him.
If I were picking the 10 best interviews in the SEC (not including McFadden), this would be my 10, in alphabetical order:
- Randall Cobb, QB/WR, Kentucky
- Joe Haden, CB, Florida
- Kentrell Lockett, DE, Ole Miss
- Dexter McCluster, RB, Ole Miss
- Greg McElroy, QB, Alabama
- Eric Norwood, OLB, South Carolina
- Colin Peek, TE, Alabama
- Tim Tebow, QB, Florida
- Chris Walker, DE, Tennessee
- D.J. Williams, TE, Arkansas
