Law Says Patience is a Virtue
"It’s most definitely part of the process of being here," Law said this week at a media availability. "You might come in and be the best, but you might not know what it takes to become the best. You might have the talent, but you don’t know the plays or anything. And then it might be vice versa. You might know the plays, but might not have the skillset that somebody else might have. It’s just taking it all and soaking it all in.
"Coming and being able to adapt to Coach Saban’s process and the stuff that has been built here.”
Quarterback Jalen Milroe can attest to the virtue of patience. He waited his turn behind first Bryce Young and then the debacle that was South Florida in Tampa. Milroe was asked Monday about the patience shown by Law and another sophomore teammate, running back Jam Miller.
"Those two have done a great job with how hard they work," Milroe said about the pair. "They're important factors of our offense and they're doing a really good job for us. Jam as a running back-- how he approaches the game is very important. He's really physical back and he makes plays all throughout the field and that's an important factor. Kendrick Law with how fast he is, physical and his mental and how he approaches the game is a big factor for us. Both of those guys are doing a good job."
One thing for certain is that dating back to the jet sweeps against Tennessee, Law's patience is paying off and thus his role is expanding the the Alabama offense of coordinator Tommy Rees.
Said Law: "It’s a positive thing, getting called on by the OC, saying ‘We have a role for you’ or ‘We have something just special for you,’" he said Tuesday. "To take it upon yourself to not only know it, but master it and go out on the field and execute it -- it’s something major.”
It will be interesting to see how Law is used against Kentucky Saturday at 11 a.m. CT. You can listen to that game on Tide 100.0, 95.3 The Bear, and 1230 AM WTBC.
