"I think it went pretty well. I can't say enough about our offensive line, receivers and our running backs that were making plays. Everyone was on the field making plays," Wilson said.
Wilson's day was tempered by two interceptions and three sacks, although one of the interceptions was redirected back onto the field of play after the pass to the sideline bounced off the helmet of Brandon Brooks and into the arms of linebacker Demarcus Waldrop.
Alabama Head Coach Mike Shula said Parker is far from ready to be a starting quarterback but, "now he's going to be a true freshman when he comes in the fall and he's got all this experience behind him."
The Dwight Stephenson Most Valuable Lineman at A-Day, also voted by the media, was JB Closner. Shula said Closner was, "by far one of the best leaders on offense, and for sure the best leader on the offensive line. You want young guys to come in and be like him and to say ‘Watch how JB Closner does it."
