Jaylen Waddle was the beneficiary of Jimbo Fisher’s dubious decision to punt the ball to him all afternoon, totaling 128 yards on four returns. He was justly recognized by the conference.
#Alabama WR/PR Jaylen Waddle has been named the SEC Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance at Texas A&M.— Charlie Potter (@Charlie_Potter) October 14, 2019
Waddle recorded 128 yards on four punt returns, a total that ranked as the third-most in Crimson Tide single-game annals.
If you want to know where Waddle’s excellence comes from, just ask him. Dealing with Nick Saban’s perfectionist ways must be easy when you have a Momma like his.
Jaylen Waddle said his mom was critical of him getting tackled by the punter and he’s pretty sure she wasn’t joking.— Michael Casagrande (@ByCasagrande) October 14, 2019
That’s great stuff that has produced a fine young man and outstanding player. What a weapon.
