TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — A Mississippi native and University of Alabama swimmer was killed Monday night when storms moved through the Tuscaloosa, Ala. area.

Servati graduated from Tupelo High School where he was a 10-time state swim champion.  At the University of Alabama, he majored in finance and was recently named to the SEC’s Winter Academic Honor Roll.
