VIDEO: Bo Scarbrough Explains Team-First Mentality at Running Back

Subscribe to Tide 102.9 on

On a team full of stars, the running back position might outshine them all in Tuscaloosa. Alabama not only returned its top three rushers at the position, but it also added two of the top freshmen in the country in Najee Harris and Brian Robinson.

The Crimson Tide will have the benefit of fresh legs throughout each game with a rotation that deep, but it will be a challenge for offensive coordinator Brian Daboll to spread the touches around in 2017. Thankfully for the coaching staff, this group of backs have brought a team-first mentality to fall camp.

“It’s not all about being the guy because without the other running backs, no one can be the guy,” Bo Scarbrough told reporters on Tuesday. “We help each other be that guy and when we’re in a game, we want them to be that guy. And we want them to do their job and we want them do their job well. Like I said, we feed off each other so we’re very happy when we see each other do a great job.”

You might think that’s easy for Scarbrough to say because he’s running back receiving the national attention after an explosive finish to 2016, but he put the group first on every question he was asked.

That’s a great sign for the offense. So is the health of Scarbrough after suffering an injury against Clemson in the national championship.

“I’m feeling pretty good,” Scarbrough said. “Body feels good. Legs feel good. So I’m feeling pretty great right now.”
