“That’s My Guy,” Javion Cohen Opens up on New Coach Eric Wolford
Javion Cohen, in his first media appearance since joining the Crimson Tide as a four-star prospect in 2019, was open with reporters. The Phenix City native spoke on everything from his own personal goals this season to what he feels the team needs to improve on as a whole.
Speaking on one of the Tide's newest staffers, offensive line coach Eric Wolford, Cohen was jovial, saying, "Coach Wolf, that's my guy," the junior continued, smiling, "I committed to him in high school actually when he was at South Carolina, so it's been great. He has a lot to offer. He teaches us a lot. He pushes us a lot in practice. It's a new experience but its definitely one worth trying."
Cohen originally committed to the Gamecocks in March of 2019, but flipped his commitment to the Tide in December of the same year.
Wolford was with South Carolina as the offensive line coach under Will Muschamp from 2017-2020 before moving onto Kentucky where he then left to join Alabama after just one season.
Cohen has played in 19 games since joining the program, starting 14 last season at left guard, but has also seen time at tackle, playing five games at the position in his freshman year.
Throughout the spring period, the offensive line is likely something that will see a lot of change, but Cohen is someone that can easily play multiple positions, and if asked to do so, should fit right in wherever he ends up.
Armed with a new coach and what will likely be a few new faces, Alabama's revamped offensive line is ready to regain the respect it once had as a Joe Moore Award winning unit.
