    B. Jones All American at Three Positions. Unprecedented?

    Jones has now been listed on at least two or three "All American" teams, including AP. I believe that he has also received AA honors at Tackle and Guard.

    Has anyone ever received such honors for three different positions on the offensive line? Or even just three different positions? Maybe back in the days when your quarterback was also your linebacker and place kicker?

    We as a fan base really don't know how much we're gonna miss our line next year. Some will be back, but it's all about chemistry and experience. RTR

    Losing Warmack, DJ, and BJ will certainly make a difference, especially early in the season. But I'll bet we figure it out...

    For clarification - Barrett Jones was a freshman AA at guard, not a "regular" All American.

    What I want to see is 3 NC rings on his hand. All 3 earned at different positions.

    I thought he was an AA at OG during his sophomore season... At any rate playing for a 3rd National Championship at a 3rd position has to be a record also...

    He was third team. Still no small accomplishment. I think he is a four time Academic All American.

    I think theres no doubt he's one of the most decorated offensive linemen thats played at Alabama...
    both athletically and academically...factor in all the charitable work he's done, how he handles himself with the press...

    can there be a better representative of a college football team?

    And I would venture to guess that he's most proud of this. He's not only a great football player, but a great student, and a great ambassador for the University.
