The University of Alabama football team wrapped up its 10th practice of the spring on Wednesday afternoon with a two-hour session in full pads on the Thomas-Drew Practice Fields.
Wednesday’s practice was the 10th of 15 spring practice sessions that will include two closed scrimmages and the annual Golden Flake A-Day Game at Bryant-Denny Stadium on April 21 at 1 p.m. CT. The game will air live on ESPN with Adnan Virk, Joey Galloway, Kirk Herbstreit and Holly Rowe on the call.
The Tide returns a total of 10 starters, including seven on offense and three on defense. The UA offense welcomes back junior quarterback Jalen Hurts, senior running back Damien Harris, four offensive linemen, including Jonah Williams, Ross Pierschbacher, Lester Cotton Sr. and Matt Womack along with junior tight end Hale Hentges.
