Jay Barker’s daughter, Sarah Ashlee, commits to Georgia
HOOVER –The daughter of former Hewitt-Trussville and University of Alabama quarterback Jay Barker has decided not to follow in the footsteps to Tuscaloosa of her father and brother. Sarah Ashlee Barker has decided to make her own path and committed to play basketball at the University of Georgia.
Her dad, Jay Barker, starred at Hewitt-Trussville before playing for Gene Stallings at Alabama and leading the Crimson Tide to the 1992 National Championship.
Her brother, Braxton Barker, has walked on at Alabama after leading the Spain Park Jaguars at quarterback. He ended his high school career with a playoff loss to his dad’s alma mater, Hewitt-Trussville.
Sarah Ashlee Barker is a junior at Spain Park High School and had offers from both Alabama and Auburn before deciding to join the Bulldogs.
In a tweet, Sarah Ashlee Barker thanked her parents for their support, her brothers for “blocking my shots,” and her coaches.
“Alabama football will always have a special place in my heart, but it’s time to do what’s best for me,” she said in the tweet.
