Alabama’s fall practice begins this week, and one Crimson Tide player is throwing down the gauntlet.
The difference between mine and alot of other athlete accounts is that im not posting pictures or videos of how hard I “grind”. Just do it

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.
