The Multifaceted Warmack
At 6-3 and 320 lbs. Alabama offensive lineman Chance Warkmack is bringing new meaning to the saying, “We grow ‘em big in the south.”
The senior from Atlanta Georgia has been putting smiles on the faces of coaches, fans, and NFL scouts since he started playing for the tide in 2009. Warmack has always gone by the ideal that if you work hard it will pay off and after staying quiet and pushing himself on the practice field he is now a top O-line pick for the 2013 draft. This isn’t just speculation from bias Alabama fans, ESPN Draft analysis Todd McShay noted,
“Warmack is as good as any guard prospect I’ve ever evaluated, and the rare guard worthy of a top-10 pick,”
McShay added that along with all of the classic traits needed in an NFL athlete Warmack is smart, a characteristic sometimes overlooked in college stars.
“I think people are starting to realize that he’s probably one of the best players at his position in the country.”
Head Coach Nick Saban raved about his larger than life player. Earning nicknames like Freight Train and Mac Truck on the field Warkmack has mastered the art of staying grounded off the field.
“I think I did ok in the game.”
Warmack humbly said after he graded out at 91 percent in Alabama’s game against Arkansas.
“I don’t really pay attention to the media, I just stay grounded and focused on my teammates.”
Either its his southern upbringing or he just doesn’t have space for his size 18 shoe and a big ego, Warmack has managed to succeed in football and friendship; having teammate Eddie Lacy’s back in both aspects.
“I call him my hero all the time.”
Lacy said about his friend. The lineman has weekly dinners with fellow jolly giant DJ Fluker and can be seen smiling ear to ear around the University of Alabama campus. Slated to begin the 2013 football season in a professional uniform on thing is sure to remain unscathed; Chance Warmack is not only a great player but a great person as well.
