The togetherness that Alabama football had last year returned it to the College Football Playoff.

Kalen DeBoer is adding to the foundation by making sure his staff continues the family mentality with the players.

The Crimson Tide wants to have a tight-knit group that will help it get back to winning national championships. Christian Robinson, Alabama’s outside linebackers coach, shared a photo to X earlier in the offseason of him bonding with his positional group over dinner. Colin Hitschler, the Tide’s co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach, has returned the favor. He posted a picture of him spending time with the safeties. The guys played games together, watched film together, and had dinner together.

Coach Hitschler captioned the photo with, “Fun night with the safeties. Always a good time with this group. Ready for the fall.”

Players such as DeVonta Smith, Malachi Moore, Red Morgan, Dre Kirkpatrick Jr., and Keon Sabb were in the photo.

It will be fun to see what the safeties do in fall camp and in the upcoming season.
