Landon Dickerson carried the Alabama football summer workout program

Last summer, no one could host workout programs due to COVID-19. College football teams were not allowed to host programs, and many gyms were closed. Athletes were looking to find a way to stay in shape with the uncertain future. For Alabama football, Landon Dickerson provided that.

In a recent interview, Dickerson explained how he created a home gym in his carport over the summer to work out. He brought in a weight rack filled with plates and plenty of dumbells. He also got an ice tub that he filled daily. On a whiteboard, he wrote the Alabama football workouts from memory to keep everyone on track.

He invited teammates to the carport over the summer to work out. During the interview, he said that he had 40 players a day come to his house to stay in shape.

While this could have been risky, Dickerson handled the situation with care. He disinfected regularly and spaced out the workout times to ensure social distancing. He also bragged that no Alabama football player who participated in his program contracted COVID-19.

On social media, Dickerson released information and photos from the summer. It included many of Alabama football fans’ favorite players working out before their undefeated season.

This took tremendous leadership from Landon Dickerson. Not only did he have to take the initiative to run all of this, but it took leadership to ensure that it was done safely.

During the regular season, it was clear that Alabama football was ahead of their competition. They ran the table and dominated in almost every game. Their strength set them apart, and that was in part due to this program led by Landon Dickerson.
