UA Coaching Staff Recognizes 10 Players of the Week for Football
The Alabama coaching staff recognized 10 players following the Saturday’s 30-12 victory over in-state rival Auburn in the annual Iron Bowl. Bradley Bozeman, Cam Robinson, ArDarius Stewart and Jonah Williams were the honorees on offense, while Jonathan Allen, Ryan Anderson, Shaun Dion Hamilton and Dalvin Tomlinson represented the defense. Minkah Fitzpatrick and Adam Griffith made the special teams list.
The offensive line trio of Bozeman, Robinson, and Williams helped clear a path for 501 yards of total offense and did not allow a sack. Bozeman anchored the line, making all the calls from the center position, while Robinson and Williams led the way from both tackle positions. Robinson posted a grade of 89 percent and recorded a team-high five knockdown blocks against the Tigers to highlight the line’s strong showing. Stewart hauled in a career-high 10 receptions for 127 yards and a touchdown, while accounting for 164 all-purpose yards. Four of his 10 catches converted first downs for the Tide, while his 12-yard pass to O.J. Howard netted another Alabama first down.
The defense did not surrender a touchdown for the fourth straight game and limited Auburn’s high-powered rushing attack to just 66 rushing yards, for an average of 2.5 yards per rush. Hamilton led the way from the linebacker position, recording a team-high eight tackles to go along with his first career interception. Allen finished with six total tackles, including two tackles for loss (-4 yards), while Anderson also recorded six total tackles, with a sack (-5 yards) and two tackles for loss (-8 yards). Tomlinson finished with four total tackles to go along with a pass breakup and quarterback hurry against the Tigers.
Griffith finished his day with three made extra points and converted each of his three field goal attempts. He kicked off seven times for 448 yards to average 64.0 yards per kick with five going for a touchback. Fitzpatrick was key in kickoff coverage, making one stop and helping to limit the Tigers to just 34 yards in the kickoff return game.
