Conference names Alabama’s Cam Robinson offensive lineman of week

Alabama coaching staff recognizes 10 players following win over Auburn

Alabama left tackle Cam Robinson was named the Southeastern Conference Offensive Lineman of the Week for his efforts in the 30-12 win over Auburn last Saturday.
 The Alabama coaching staff recognized 10 players following victory that gave Alabama a 12-0 regular season record going into Saturday’s SEC Championship Game against Florida at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. In addition to Robinson, the Tide staff cited fellow offensive linemen center Bradley Bozeman and right tackle Jonah Williams and wide receiver ArDarius Stewart on offense; defensive ends Jonathan Allen and Dalvin Tomlinson, outside linebacker Ryan Anderson, and middle linebacker Shaun Dion Hamilton on defense; and placekicker Adam Griffith and cover man Minkah Fitzpatrick on special teams.
Robinson cleared a path for 203 rushing yards and 501 yards of total offense against the Tigers defense. The junior left tackle posted a grade of 89 per cent and did not allow a quarterback hurry or a sack, while recording a team-high five knockdown blocks. He helped provide time for quarterback Jalen Hurts to throw for 286 yards (298 as a team) and two touchdowns while completing 75 percent of his passes and rushing for 37 yards and a touchdown. The Monroe, La., native opened holes for 90 yards on the ground for Bo Scarbrough and 47 yards for Damien Harris.
 Robinson has anchored the Tide offensive line that has blocked for the conference’s top scoring offense and has helped the Alabama rushing attack to accumulate 245.9 yards per game, which ranks second in the league. The award is Robinson’s first from the league office this season.
Also participating in that blocking performance against Auburn were Bozeman and Williams, both new to the offensive starting lineup this year.
Stewart hauled in a career-high 10 receptions for 127 yards and a touchdown, while accounting for 164 all-purpose yards. Four of his 10 catches converted first downs for the Tide, while his 12-yard pass to O.J. Howard netted another Alabama first down.
The defense did not surrender a touchdown for the fourth straight game and limited Auburn’s high-powered rushing attack to just 66 rushing yards, for an average of 2.5 yards per rush. Hamilton led the way from the linebacker position, recording a team-high eight tackles to go along with his first career interception. Allen finished with six total tackles, including two tackles for loss (-4 yards), while Anderson also recorded six total tackles, with a sack (-5 yards) and two tackles for loss (-8 yards). Tomlinson finished with four total tackles to go along with a pass breakup and quarterback hurry against the Tigers.
Griffith made all three of his extra points and converted each of his three field goal attempts. He kicked off seven times for 448 yards to average 64 yards per kick with five going for a touchback. Fitzpatrick was key in kickoff coverage, making one stop and helping to limit the Tigers to just 34 yards in the kickoff return game.
