Tide's Lester Leads By Example

Ball-hawking safety Robert Lester (Foley HS, AL) has developed into a leader in the secondary. He is a punishing tackler and outstanding example of a Nick Saban pupil who has grasped the system over time.

Now the Alabama safety has matured and embraces a new role - teacher. The near flawless defensive performance by Alabama in November against the number one rated LSU Tigers was instrumental in allowing the Crimson Tide another chance to compete for the 2012 Allstate BCS National Championship Trophy. Robert Lester may be wearing a second ring to match the 2009 version he earned as a red-shirt freshman.
