Kenyan Drake Tweets That He'll Do His Talking On The Field

Alabama’s fall practice begins this week, and one Crimson Tide player is throwing down the gauntlet.

Tide running back Kenyan Drake put other players on notice with this Tweet about his efforts going into the 2014 season.

Drake is among Alabama’s loaded roster of talented running backs. Starter T.J. Yeldon is already being  mentioned in some discussions of the Heisman race, while Drake will be battling for carries against sophomore behemoth Derrick Henry.

Despite a minor run-in with Tuscaloosa police a few weeks ago, Drake comes into fall camp as one of Alabama’s most electrifying backs, and he provides a different look than some of the power backs Alabama features.

Alabama fans will point to this as a sign that Alabama’s most enigmatic running back might do all his grinding on the field this season.
