Aundre Hyatt Named to SEC Community Service Team

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — In a continuing effort to recognize the accomplishments of student-athletes beyond the field of competition, the SEC once again highlighted a Community Service Team for men’s basketball for the 2020-21 season.

LSU sophomore Aundre Hyatt is the Tigers representative on the team.

This marks the 23rd year for the SEC Community Service Team for men’s basketball as well as for women’s basketball. All 21 league-sponsored sports have had a Community Service Team since 2004, with at-large teams for men’s and women’s sports being chosen from 1999-2003. The SEC began this concept with a football Community Service Team in 1994.

Hyatt, from the Bronx, New York, is LSU’s representative on the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee which helps to assist the creation of an environment where all student-athletes have the opportunity to maximize their academic, athletic, personal and social growth.

He also serves on the executive committee of the recently established Black Student-Athlete Association which exists to create a safe space and advocacy channel for Black-identifying student-athletes at LSU.

Hyatt helped with the organization of the Tigers United campaign and an athletic student and staff march and event outside the Maravich Center prior to the start of the school year. He has been involved in PSA campaigns for the organization and Black History Month.

Before COVID-19, he took part in several team activities in the community such as the Halloween BOO-Zar and Coach Will Wade‘s annual Christmas shopping event with the local Boys and Girls Club at a local department store.

The complete 2021 team members are:

Tyler Jones, Alabama

Moses Moody, Arkansas

Babatunde Akingbola, Auburn

Anthony Duruji, Florida

P.J. Horne, Georgia
