Alabama football is scheduled to have one of its two scrimmages of spring practice on Friday.
Both events at Bryant-Denny Stadium will carry more importance than the A-Day Game.

In game-like practices, Nick Saban and his coaching staff want to see which players can play fast and effectively. Coach Saban will start off having one’s versus one’s and two’s versus two’s but expect him to also mix things up. The idea for this is to locate the players that perform with confidence versus those who still need time to develop. After not having a spring session in 2020, fans of the Crimson Tide are excited about the quarterback room. Alabama has three players with a lot of talent — Bryce Young, Paul Tyson, and Jalen Milroe — however, the conversation is centered around two of them.
Young and Tyson are battling for the starting job, and Saban stated that Young is ‘a little ahead’ of everyone else in the room. The scrimmage will answer questions on which one not only has the best command of the offense but also which one gives the Tide the best chance to win games next fall.
On Monday, yours truly of Touchdown Alabama Magazine discussed the first scrimmage via In My Own Words.
Will Young be able to dominate the first-team defense? Can Tyson put in a great performance? Will Milroe shock everyone?
These thoughts will be answered on Friday.
