Alabama’s season passing holder is caught in a tough spot.
Former Crimson Tide quarterback Blake Sims guided the team to its first appearance in the inaugural College Football Playoff in 2014. He tossed for 3,487 passing yards and totaled 35 touchdowns to 10 interception. Alabama did not finish the job last season, but returned to the “Big Dance” this year in hopes to capture its 16th national championship in school history.
Sims earned his playing time and a degree from Alabama (2010-14), yet the Gainesville, Georgia native has a soft spot for Clemson signal-caller Deshaun Watson. He said he is pulling for Alabama to win, but Sims will be cheering for his little brother. Watson, like Sims, is from Gainesville.
