LB target Thomas Johnston close to becoming

the Alabama all time leading tackler.

He had 16 tackles, a TFL and a blocked punt in last night’s win. He has 120 tackles for season and needs 25 to break the record. Spanish Fort has one more regular season game and then to the playoffs so it would be surprising if he doesn’t break the record.

He started the last 10 games on the varsity level as an 8th grader and had 66 tackles. He had 121 tackles as a freshmen, 143 as a sophomore and 147 last year.

I hope tonight didn’t affect his opinion of us.

Never know. I remember Arkansas losing to South Carolina when Hjalte Froholdt was visiting and people wrote him off.

If this was an every week thing, it might.

But he just saw them take down Ole Miss in person and prospects are very rarely as overreactive as fans.

Thomas is not the type of kid to over-react. He probably also sees he can play right away.
