Story can make an impact at several positions.

NCAA Football: Citrus Bowl-Michigan vs Alabama Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Lanett High School standout and Alabama commit Kristian Story has been named Mr. Football.

Story is listed as an ATH and is expected to end up in the defensive backfield, but he reportedly wants to be given a chance to play quarterback as well. He took the snaps at Lanett in 2019 and was also named the state’s offensive back of the year after breaking the state record for total offense.

Story has prototypical size and athleticism for a Saban defensive back, and that’s probably where his NFL future lies. The main question will be the jump in competition from small classification high school ball to the SEC, but physically he looks ready to play.

Congratulations to him on this prestigious award.

Roll Tide.
