The Fault In Our Football Stars: Kenyan Drake Arrested

Alabama running back Kenyan Drake was arrested this morning for "obstructing government operations". The junior from Georgia was disobedient when told to stand back from a police scene. Drake's car was parked past the caution tape set around the scene of a shooting. Instead of obeying officer's wishes, Drake went into the crime scene and made his way to his car. The incident took place at the Temerson Square area around 1 a.m. Drake was immediately stopped and cuffed before he could get to his car.

Drake's bond was set at $1,000 for the misdemeanor charge. As a freshman Drake totaled 273 yards rushing and 5 touchdowns. He improved during his sophomore season, rushing for 694 yards and 8 touchdowns. Drake is a versatile player who made the most of his snaps. Despite playing behind TJ Yeldon, Drake was able to make an impact on the field. Drake found himself working behind Derrick Henry and TJ Yeldon during spring drills.

One can say that Drake is the type of player who falls back two steps for every one positive step forward. He has been a bit of a headache at times for the Crimson Tide coaching staff and fan base. He was suspended for the Western Carolina game as a freshman for violating team rules. There was speculation that Drake was going to transfer, but after this year's Sugar Bowl loss Drake announced via Twitter that he was going nowhere. Drake's lack of common sense seems to be apparent. He took to Twitter in January to announce that "most girls like basketball more than football (because) they can follow it a lot easier".

Although the situation seems to be minor, it is still unacceptable. All eyes are on NCAA athletes. Drake needs to realize what is at stake. He represents a team and university that doesn't stand for petty mistakes. This lack of common sense needs to be dealt with in an appropriate manner.
