Alabama football is now ready for preseason camp.

Except for 2020, each freshmen class of the Nick Saban era received an opportunity to have fun on Lake Tuscaloosa.

The Coronavirus pandemic kept the 2020 class from the action, but this year’s group of freshmen had a blast. Players rode golf charts through the woods, rode on Saban’s boat, took turns on jet skis, and some fell off the inner tubes into the water.

Coach Saban enjoys the bonding experience because it presents a moment for him to learn the players.

It also provides a chance for the freshmen to get to know their teammates. Names such as Kool-Aid McKinstry, Keanu Koht, Anquin Barnes, and Dallas Turner were featured in a video.

Saban is a big fan of The Eagles, but Turner put his head coach on some rap music from DaBaby.

Freshmen experienced the calm before the storm; however, the team goes to work on Friday.
