ALABAMA FOOTBALL COMPLETES FIRST SCRIMMAGE

By WVUA 23 Web Writer Bryant Horn

Last Saturday, the Alabama football team took their next step to their A-Day spring game. The team had their first scrimmage of the spring and it was a cold and wet one.

The Crimson Tide went through their usual warm ups before the team scrimmaged for around 130 plays. This scrimmage was closed to the media and the public, and no stats were given, but head coach Nick Saban said he was impressed with the results.

“I thought the hitting was good, and the effort was good. I thought the players really tried to play well and execute. I thought several players made several good plays, but just like you would expect in a first scrimmage, there were probably other plays we could have made that we wish we could have back,” Saban said. “If we didn’t have those plays, then we wouldn’t need to have practice. We wouldn’t have to work to get better,” Saban said.

The annual Alabama ‘A-Day’ game will kick off at 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 21. The game will be televised on ESPN, and tickets to the game are free.
