Former Alabama Christian Academy star Chandler Taylor was named the SEC Player of the Week after leading the Alabama Crimson Tide to a sweep of Auburn in this past weekend’s series.

Taylor, a sophomore, led the Crimson Tide in every offensive category batting .500 with a pair of doubles, three home runs, three RBIs, five runs scored and three walks while slugging 1.286 for the three games.

Taylor hit a pair of home runs in a one-run victory on Friday, then added four hits and scored three runs in the series finale on Sunday.

Alabama ended its 13-game losing streak in the series with Auburn and continued the trend of winning the weekend series against the Tigers while losing the non-conference matchup in Montgomery the previous March.
