Braswell taking on leadership role for Tide football

By WVUA-23 Sports Reporter Sam Holley

University of Alabama football has begun its second week of spring practice.

On Tuesday, senior linebacker Chris Braswell spoke to the media, saying he doesn’t feel his game is complete and he’s still looking for ways he can improve.

“I feel like I can improve on a lot of things in my game,” Braswell said. “Pass rushing, playing the run, dropping in coverage. You can never be great at anything. You can always get better.” 

Another aspect Braswell is building on is how to be a better leader and mentor for younger players.

“If a young guy asks me about a play, I’ll go out and help them with that,” Braswell said. “For me just stepping up in that leadership and being a vocal leader, and also showing leadership like actions.”

Alabama is looking to replace most of their front seven on defense, including outside linebacker Will Anderson, defensive end Bryon Young, defensive lineman DJ Dale and middle linebackers Jaylen Moody and Henry To’oTo’o.

Some players in competition for the slots include middle linebacker Deontae Lawson, defensive lineman Jaheim Oatis and defensive end Justin Eboigbe, along with six highly touted incoming freshmen. 

Alabama will have its A-Day April 22 at 3 p.m. If you can’t make it in person, it’ll be streamed on ESPN.
