Woodbridge (Va.) head coach Karibi Dede certainly knows what it takes to play defense in the Southeastern Conference. The first-year head coach played linebacker at Auburn from from 2002-2006, and was a member of the Tigers undefeated, 13-0, SEC championship team in 2004.
Although Dede's roots are in Auburn, he was excited to see his top player, five-star defensive end Da'Shawn Hand, announce his commitment to Alabama on Thursday.
After Hand's announcement, Dede spoke to Fox Sports/Scout.com about exactly what makes Da'Shawn Hand so special.
