Alabama practice: Hurts talks about improved mechanics
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. —
Alabama football held it's seventh workout of the Spring on Wednesday.
For the first time since 2013, the Tide has a solid starter returning at the quarterback position. Jalen Hurts was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Year as a freshman, and new offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is already helping him build off that success. Hurts' mechanics are getting a tune-up.
"Every day he says my feet are better," Hurts said. "I'm showing the pitch. My accuracy is better. He sees improvement. So I want to keep taking a step forward every day instead of a step backward."
Hurts is going into his second season, and he's already the veteran of the quarterback group. Highly touted freshman Tua Tagovailoa and Mac Jones are competing for the backup job. The pressure is still on Hurts to produce.
"Like last year I just expect to out there and play my game. As we improve every day in practice, you can only expect to see an improved quarterback as a sophomore in the coming season."
