Mullet Toss: Milroe, Coker, Oats, and DeBoer among Bama legends who took part in the Flora-Bama tradition

The annual Mullet Toss competition at the Flora-Bama has become the most iconic beach party in all of the South.

Over the weekend, bar and beach goers competed to see who could throw a mullet fish the furthest, and the event had some very special and unexpected guests.

Nate Oats, Jalen Milroe, Malachi Moore, and Kalen DeBoer were just some of the confirmed legends that attended the event, with Moore and Milroe even participating in the tossing of the dead fish.

Milroe participated along with former national championship winning Tide quarterback Jake Coker.

But according to Coker, who hopped on 105.5 WNSP in Mobile on Monday to break it down, his fish went farther than Milroe’s.

“I’m not actually sure yet, they said Jalen threw it 90 something (feet) and the Flora-Bama said they would call me and let me know when my mullet landed, so I’m really not sure what that measurement was yet,” Coker joked with a laugh.

Coker also joked that DeBoer and Oats didn’t throw because they would be shaking hands at the Yea Alabama event in Orange Beach later that day and didn’t want to smell like fish.

“I think Jalen [Milroe] was kind of the same way, he grabbed that mullet with two fingers and kinda just lofted it out there, I don’t think he was taking it too serious.”

He went on to reveal that his throw was measured around 140 feet, making Jake Coker the undisputed Alabama champion of throwing fish.

Milroe, however, will hope to accomplish something else this season that Coker has over him by winning a national championship.
