Drake And Mullaney Are Believers

Kenyan Drake and Richard Mullaney are two of the valued playmakers the Crimson Tide can count on for the rest of the season. A single loss has not dampened their spirit despite issues with turnovers, inconsistency at the quarterback position and lack of an offensive identity.

Alabama (2-1, 0-1) looks to rebound against Louisiana-Monroe (1-1, 0-0) at 3 PM CDT Saturday afternoon. The Tide and Warhawks face off at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa. Kenyan Drake is the second leading rusher on the team with 150 yards on 27 carries. He is averaging 5.6 per rush with a long run of 43 yards and one touchdown. The 6-1, 210 pound senior running back has caught seven passes for 139 yards and one touchdown. His longest reception was a second quarter 69-yard Utah pass from quarterback Jacob Coker against Middle Tennessee. He has returned eight kick-offs for 170 yards with a long of 40.

Richard Mullaney is tied for the lead on the team with two touchdown receptions after three games. The 6-3, 208 pound senior wide receiver has 10 catches for 103 yards with a long of 22. He returned a kick-off 16 yards and punt for 22.

Drake and Mullaney addressed the assembled media on Tuesday afternoon prior to practice.
