Reggie Ragland Named Butkus Award Semifinalist

New, comments

The Alabama Senior has been as good as advertised on defense filled with emerging and established stars

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

It's safe to say Reggie's decision to come back to the Capstone is paying dividends. The preseason All-American/All-SEC inside linebacker has been an absolute monster captaining the Alabama defense this season.

The senior captain has notched a team-high 71 tackles, including five tackles for loss (-18 yards), to go along with two sacks, two forced fumbles, three pass breakups and three quarterback hurries. He has led the team in tackles in seven of the eight games this season, including a season-high 12 tackles in the win against Tennessee.

And his work is getting noticed.
