Hey everybody! Hope you had a great 4th of July! I know I did. I ate too much and took in the local fireworks here in Crossville. We had a great time & I hope you did too. Just looking at the calendar and seen that we are 60 days away from Alabama's kickoff.

What to Look For In Fall

Next month will be opening of fall camp and there will be lots of competition for playing time for the Crimson Tide players. One spot that is especially intriguing is at quarterback. QB is the leader of the offense and it will be interesting to see whether AJ McCarron or Phil Simms rises to the top.

The defense will be packed with talent as senior Mark Barron leads this impressive group of players. Look for Don'ta Hightower, Dre Kirkpatrick, Robert Lester, & Courtney Upshaw to make big plays all fall. This group is very talented and deep. The big question marks will be on defensive line. Hopefully someone will step up and provide great run-stopping-ability up-front.


As always, it will be interesting to see if any freshmen will step right in and contribute immediately. If they do, they are very good. I have a feeling even though Trey Depriest is behind some stiff competition at LB... he will be one of the freshmen that will see lots of playing time. It is also very possible that Cyrus Kouandjio will be an impact player if he learns the offense. He has a very imposing frame & athletic ability. The key will be his ability to learn the offensive line schemes. Don't forget Dee Hart. He has the speed that can make a difference on offense and punt returns.

This upcoming year will be exciting. I am getting revved up thinking about it being ONLY 60 DAYS away! I hope you are too!
