Aug. 15, 2008


TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - During preseason football camp, will take fans behind the scenes with various Crimson Tide players. Today, sophomore offensive lineman Brian Motley shares his thoughts on practice the Tide's offensive line.

On preseason practice:
"Everything is going pretty well. I'm getting in the flow of the offense and I'm learning the offense. It's going good.  Everything is going well.  I'm just trying to learn all the calls and make the right calls.  I'm working hard and trying to do what I can to help the team."

On preference of offense or defense:
"My preference is wherever Coach (Saban) puts me and allows me to help the team. 

On your role on offensive line:
"I'm concentrating on center right now and little bit at guard.

On advice from Antoine Caldwell:
"He helps me a lot.  He goes over the playbook with me.  He shows me different techniques and what I need to do with my blocking assignments.  Mostly, he just tells me everything he knows and that helps."

On offensive line:
"We have a pretty experienced offensive line.  Plus, I live with all of them, so every night we get together and go over the play book and try and learn different things each day."
