Loves the Tide

<b>Zach Schreiber</b> is a 6-2, 220 pound LB/DE for Evangel Christian in Shreveport, Louisiana. Schreiber made an official visit to Alabama for the Iron Bowl. Schreiber loved every part of his visit. Does this visit put the Tide in the Lead?

"The visit went great. I loved it there. I got in on Saturday morning and went to the game. We had dinner with the coaches at Cypress Inn on Saturday night. I went out with my player host, Matt Miller, later that night. Sunday morning, we had breakfast with the coaches and had a few meetings. I got back into Shreveport about thirty minutes ago," said Zach Schreiber.

The star linebacker was impressed with the Tide's performance against Auburn, despite the loss.

"I thought they (Alabama) did really good. Alabama is playing with basically their second and third string players in the backfield. They played the third best team in the country. It really says a lot about the Alabama defense and the program."

The Alabama coaching staff made strong impression with Schreiber.

"It was the first time I was able to meet the coaches. I met all of them. They were all really nice and I enjoyed being around them. Coach Harbison is my recruiting coach and I just loved him. He is a really great guy. I also loved Coach Shula. He is a young coach and he can relate better to young players. He is focused on winning the national championship and I really like him a lot," said Schreiber.

Alabama was Schreiber's second official visit and the visit has now placed Alabama in the driver's seat to land the Evangel Christian star.

"This weekend was my second visit. The other visit I went on was to Texas Tech. The Alabama visit was a lot better than Tech. I felt more comfortable and I just really enjoyed myself. I loved the campus. Everything is close together which makes going places real convenient. I loved the new facilities. They are among the top in the nation. It was just awesome. I can definitely say Alabama is my overall favorite."

Was Schreiber close to making a commitment?

"I still want to take a few more official visits. I might be going to Ole Miss next weekend, but I am not sure yet," Schreiber added.

Evangel Christian is hoping to win the state championship, but has a tough task waiting. This week, they will play East St. John's, which features Ryan Perrilloux, in the quarterfinals.

"We are still in the playoffs. We are in the quarterfinals and we are about to win the state championship, in a couple of weeks. We play East St. Johns this week, in New Orleans. They have Ryan Perrilloux, but we are going to come out and get on him early," said Schreiber.

For the year, Schreiber has recorded sixty-five tackles, eighteen sacks, with twenty-eight tackles for a loss.
