Following the conclusion of the 2013 BCS National Championship game where the Alabama Crimson Tide dominated the Notre Dame Fighting Irish ESPN sports reporter Chris Low caught up with Linebacker Nico Johnson, Offensive Lineman Chance Warmack and DJ Fluker, as [...]
Alabama offensive guard Chance Warmack isn’t fond of one-word descriptions of his football team. But if he had to pick one, it’d be “physical.” “We made it a big challenge amongst ourselves to play physical throughout the time we had to practice, because we knew what we were going to be up against,” Warmack said of Alabama’s 42-14 rout of Notre Dame in Monday’s BCS championship game. “That’s our M.O. That’s who we want to be — a physical team.”
In the hours leading up to Saturday’s game, ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit said Alabama guard Chance Warmack was a “war daddy” and would “put on a clinic” against Mississippi State. He was right. Warmack graded out at 90 percent, had four pancake blocks, no missed assignments, no penalties, no sacks and no pressures in the Crimson Tide’s 38-7 victory.
Alabama’s two most experienced offensive linemen garnered top recognition from Sports Illustrated today, as both Barrett Jones and Chance Warmack were named to the magazine’s preseason All-American team. Jones, last year’s Outland Trophy winner, and Warmack, a potential first-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, have barely missed a snap since the 2010 season. Jones, the Crimson Tide’s new center who has previously started at tackle and guard, has been a regular starter since 2009.
TUSCALOOSA, Alabama – Chance Warmack’s announcement Thursday that he would return to Alabama next season was obviously news worthy. So was the fact he has a 14-year-old brother named Dallas Warmack, whom he is grooming to one day play college football, possibly at Alabama. With one practice left, Warmack said Thursday he was looking forward to returning to Atlanta for the holiday weekend.
The Crimson Tide’s starting left guard explored making an early jump to the NFL. “I talked to my parents about it, and we discussed it,” Warmack said. “I’m pretty much gonna be here for another year. I like teammates, I love them to death. I love the program. I still feel I have a lot of stuff to do as far as developing as an offensive lineman. I want to help the team one more year.”
