Alabama’s “Explosive Guy” On Offense
Alabama head coach Nick Saban had many positive things to say when he spoke to the media after Alabama’s 63-7 win over ULM. One player that Saban highlighted in his postgame press conference was running back Jahmyr Gibbs.
“He is an explosive guy," said Saban. "We need as many weapons as possible on offense and he’s certainly been one of the most consistent weapons that we’ve had to this point.”
Against ULM, Gibbs led the team in receiving yards with 65 yards on four receptions and one touchdown. Gibbs added 36 yards on the ground on four carries.
“He’s definitely a guy that’s a really good playmaker and especially when he gets the ball in space, although he’s a very good runner as well,” said Saban. “I think Bryce has a lot of confidence in him.”
The Dalton, Ga. native has been a stand out for the Tide so far in this short season. Gibbs notably stepped up in the Texas game with some huge receptions, including the touchdown late in the game.
Gibbs and the Tide look to keep the offense rolling as SEC play starts next week. Stay up to date with all of your game day coverage on Tide1009.com or on the Tide 100.9 app.
