Trevon Diggs Discusses His Return from Injury
The 2018 college football season saw the Alabama Crimson Tide appear in their fourth consecutive national title game.
Stars such as Tua Tagovailoa, Jerry Jeudy, Henry Ruggs III, Mack Wilson and Quinnen Williams spearheaded the Crimson Tide's 14-0 start to the season before falling to eventual national champion Clemson.
For one importance piece of Alabama's defense, the 2019 season has the feeling of a fresh start.
Senior Trevon Diggs missed nine games last season due to a broken foot suffered in the 65-31 win at Arkansas last season. In his six appearances last season, the Gaithersburg, Maryland, native recorded 20 tackles, six pass breakups and one interception.
Prior to hitting the practice field, Diggs talked about the feeling he has of getting back out onto the practice field.
"It feels good. I wasn't on the field for something like six months. When I first got back out there, I was kind of rusty, kind of timid, but as I started to keep going through the flow of things and just started to ease up, ease up and now I feel great." Diggs said.
During his absence away from competition, the senior cornerback gained an insight into leading other players.
"I got to learn from a different aspect. I got to see how I can coach, help other people and help myself as well.It's more aspect to the game than just playing and doing it." Diggs said.
Another lesson he learned from his injury concerns valuing every opportunity you get.
"I also learned you can't take anything for granted. You got to make the most of every opportunity that you get. You can't take it for granted." Diggs said.
