TUSCALOOSA, Ala.- The University of Alabama football team completed its 10th practice of the spring Wednesday afternoon with a two-hour practice in full pads at the Thomas-Drew Practice Facility.
With five practices remaining in the spring, Alabama head football coach Nick Saban talked character building and improving as a team heading into the final week of practice.
"The team's competitive character is made up of the individuals and what kind of competitive character they have, what kind of discipline they have, what kind of effort they give, what kind of toughness they play with, how responsible they are, and what kind of condition they are in, that's really what is most important." Saban said.
"In whatever we do the individuals on the team will make up the teams character and no on can create it but the individuals on the team.
"We want to make sure we know what to do, so we can go out there and do it over and over again, not just go out and endure the practice but improve and get better," Saban added.
Alabama will practice again Friday, April 13 and hold its second scrimmage of the spring Saturday, April 14 at Bryant-Denny Stadium. All practices and Saturday's scrimmage are closed to the general public.
The Crimson Tide will practice twice next week (April 17 and 20) and wrap up spring drills with the annual Golden Flake A-Day game Saturday, April 21 at 1:05 p.m. (CDT) at Bryant-Denny Stadium. The A-Day game will be televised live by Comcast Sports Southeast (CSS), with Chris Stewart and Tyler Watts.
