Football practices for first time since Saturday scrimmage

Terrin Waack

On Tuesday afternoon the Alabama football team held its first practice since its second and final scrimmage of fall camp took place on Saturday.

The question still remains as to who will be the starting quarterback on Sept. 5 for the Crimson Tide’s season opener against Wisconsin. However, senior Jake Coker started drills during the media viewing period, followed by junior Alec Morris. Walk-on 19 joined Coker’s line behind Morris while David Cornwell led a second line. Cooper Bateman, Blake Barnett and walk-on number 10 followed Cornwell in that order.


  • Wide receivers ArDarius Stewart, Chris Black, Richard Mullaney, Cam Sims and Daylon Charlot, in order, were catching passes from Coker’s line of quarterbacks.
  • Robert Foster led another line of wide receivers, followed by Calvin Ridley and Derek Kief in order, that caught passes from Cornwell’s line of quarterbacks.
  • The receivers seemed to alternate running long and short routes.
  • Later walk-on number 19 left the wide receivers to throw to a long line of tight ends. O.J. Howard led this drill, followed by TY Flournoy-Smith, Hale Hentges, Johnny Dwight, Dakota Ball, Michael Nysewander and other players that were not limited to being tight ends.
  • Part of the offensive line appeared to be working on different one-on-one drills off to the side while others lined up with Alphonese Taylor taking his place on the line at right guard.
