Alex Leatherwood named SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week

The quiet performer gets some recognition.

The SEC announced its weekly awards today, and Alex Leatherwood was among the honorees.


He totaled 62 snaps, missing just one assignment, during the 35-13 win over Tennessee at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Leatherwood did not allow a sack, hurry or quarterback pressure against the Vols

Alex rarely gets the attention from film analysts that Landon Dickerson and Jedrick Wills Jr. have this season, but quietly goes about his job and holds down the left side. Despite the relative lack of attention, he routinely appears in the first round of mock NFL drafts. Some team is soon going to get an outstanding drama-free player in a few months.

Here’s hoping he has some more hardware to take with him before then. Congrats to Alex on the well deserved honor.

Roll Tide!
