TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The Alabama football team took to the field twice on Wednesday for its first two-a-day of fall camp. The Crimson Tide got after it in the morning in full pads and will return to the Thomas-Drew Practice Facility at 7:30 p.m.
"Camp has been a lot more intense," junior defensive back Will Lowery said. "I feel like we our out to prove something this year. We have been really grounded and working hard this camp."
The first two-a-day practice comes on the sixth workout of the fall. Alabama will suit up 22 more times, which includes two scrimmages, before facing Kent State in the season opener on Sept. 3 at Bryant-Denny Stadium at 11:21 a.m. on the SEC Network.
"It has been challenging with the heat and humidity to practice twice in the same day," junior defensive back Dre Kirkpatrick said. "You just have to get going and find something that will motivate you."
UA will hold a single practice on Thursday before conducting the week's final two-a-day practice on Friday. Alabama will then hold the fall's first scrimmage on Saturday. All practices are closed to the public.
