Two selections apiece on offense, defense and special teams all earned the recognition


TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The Alabama coaching staff selected six players of the week following the Crimson Tide’s 35-13 win over Tennessee last Saturday at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Najee Harris and Alex Leatherwood on offense; Anfernee Jennings and Terrell Lewis on defense; and Ale Kaho and Ty Perine on special teams all earned the recognition for their standout efforts against the Vols on the Third Saturday in October.



Najee Harris

  • Recorded his third 100-yard rushing performance of the season and second in as many games with 105 yards on a team-high 21 carries
  • Led all backs with two rushing scores, with the junior taking it in from one yard out on both touchdowns
  • Added four receptions for 48 yards in the passing game

Alex Leatherwood

  • Was dominant from his left tackle post
  • Played 62 snaps and did not allow a sack, hurry or pressure on the Tide’s quarterbacks
  • The junior missed only one assignment on the night while helping the Tide rack up 140 rushing yards



Anfernee Jennings

  • Tied for second on the team in tackles with seven stops, including half a tackle for loss (-1 yard)
  • The redshirt senior’s efforts helped limit the Vols to only 231 yards of total offense

Terrell Lewis

  • Matched Jennings with seven tackles, adding a team-high two sacks (-20 yards) and three tackles for loss (-21 yards)
  • The two sacks matched his career-high mark while the three tackles for loss were a new career-best for the redshirt junior, surpassing his previous total of two which came at Texas A&M last weekend



Ale Kaho

  • Contributed one stop on kickoff coverage to limit the Volunteer returner to just a 13-yard return
  • The sophomore has been named a special teams player of the week now in four of the Tide’s seven matchups so far this season, including the last three consecutive games

Ty Perine

  • Came off the bench to punt for the Crimson Tide in his first game action as a freshman
  • Called on to punt just twice but totaled 93 yards on the two kicks with a long of 51
  • Also contributed one tackle on punt coverage to prevent a UT score
