TideMan81: Welcome to Crimson Tide Family Brandon. As you can tell, us Bama Fans are excited you chose the Tide. What are your impressions of us Bama Fans? We're fanatics when it comes to our Crimson Tide football. Did fan support factor in your final decision to which school you went to?

"Not really, but I do know what Alabama football means to the people down there. Thank you for welcoming me."

UThater: Roll Tide Fanney!!..I think I read where your nickname was pee-wee...Would you mind telling us how you ended up with your nickname?

"At one point, I was little and my family did not think I was going to grow. My aunt gave that name to me, and it has been with me ever since."

CrimsonFever1: Welcome, Brandon! I absolutely can't wait for you and Zo to arrive and start working out and getting acclimated. Do you anticipate playing right or left DE or what? How about Zo? What are your chances of starting and who do you see as the top 6 DEs that will play this season? Roll Tide - it is fantastic to know you will soon be here!

"I'm at left. Zo at right. I don't expect to come in and start. Mark (Anderson) and Wallace (Gilberry) have proven they can play. At the same time, they have no room for mistakes. I have watched both of them play, and I respect them for their play on the field. I'm going to push both of them for a starting spot, because I think I'm just as good."

"Top 6 D-Ends: Mark Anderson, Wallace Gilberry, BRANDON FANNEY, Zo Washington, Chris Harris, Keith Saunders."

Andrew Bone: It has been a great Q & A with Lorenzo Washington and Brandon Fanney "stationed" at Hargrave Military Academy. By reading their answers, it is not a surprise to hear they are ready to leave Chatom, Virginia and suit up for the Crimson Tide.
