Alabama football holds first practice of 2014 fall camp
The Alabama football team started fall camp this morning on the Thomas-Drew practice field. The entire squad was not at the first practice as the freshman and a few others should be in attendance later this evening. Most of the veteran players were at the initial kick-off practice this morning going through drills and working on fundamentals.
The big story of the day for the Crimson Tide is seeing new-comer Jacob Coker dressed out with the team and working out with the other QBs and receivers. Blake Sims and Cooper Bateman were also getting in reps throwing the ball. All three QBs were taking turns passing to the running backs, receivers and tight ends.
Receivers in action this morning were Amari Cooper, DeAndrew White, Robert Foster, Chris Black, and Christion Jones while O.J. Howard, Brian Vogler and Malcolm Faciane represented the tight ends during drills. The usual running back corps was in attendance with Derrick Henry, Kenyan Drake and Jalston Fowler all following TJ Yeldon through the drills.
Head coach Nick Saban and defensive Coordinator Kirby Smart were both working with their respective groups in the secondary. Corners Eddie Jackson, Tony Brown and Brandon Sylve, Cyrus Jones and Anthony Averett all were working on fundamentals with Saban while Landon Collins, Geno Smith, Jarrick Williams and and Nick Perry worked with Smart at the safety position. Jackson looked to be in good shape running through drills with ease although he was wearing a brace on his right knee.
Dillion Lee led the drills for the outside linebackers along with Denzel Devall, Xzavier Dickson and Josh Dickerson while Trey DePriest, Reggie Ragland and Reuben Foster were the working with Kevin Steele at the inside spot.
Saban will address the media following practice this morning and the Tide’s second practice of the day will take place this evening at 7:30.
