Saturday’s matchup against Chattanooga will be the last home game of the season for the Alabama Football team. This may be one last chance for fans to see Seniors like Will Reichard, Jermaine Burton, Seth McLaughlin, and a few other seniors. This may also be the final home game for players like Dallas Turner, JC Latham, Kool-Aid Mckinstry, Terrion Arnold, and Chris Braswell amongst a few others who are expected to enter this year’s NFL Draft.
While seeing players who have contributed in a massive way to the Alabama Football program over the last two or three years, we may also see faces we haven’t seen play but, have been in the program for a few years.
The game will provide for an interesting split between seeing potential future contributors play alongside seniors who haven’t been given a chance to play yet on Saturday. We may see freshman quarterback Dylan Lonergan handing the ball off to a senior in Jonathan Bennett. While this weekend’s game is important both for this season and for the future it’s important to honor the commitment of the players that have put four years of hard work and dedication into this program.
Coach Saban Spoke on Senior Day this week saying the following:
"I think it speaks volumes of their commitment to the program. If guys can stay focused on long term they’ll improve even if they don’t play."
