    5 Alabama Players to Participate in Raycom All-Star Classic

    Link

    Five departing Alabama seniors won't have much time to rest from Monday's BCS National Championship.
    Kicker Jeremy Shelley, long snapper Carson Tinker, defensive ends Quinton Dial and Damion Square and H-Back Kelly Johnson will participate in the inaugural Raycom College Football All-Star Classic.


    The game is set for Jan. 19 at the Cramton Bowl. Kickoff is slated for 2 p.m. and it will air on CBS Sports Network.


    All five players will be on the "Stripes" team, which will be coached by former NFL coach Dan Reeves.

    So I guess they won't be able to attend the celebration, but I am proud of them. Hope they all do great.

    Every one of them deserves a shot -- glad to see it!

    Do NFL teams keep "long snappers" that just do that?

    Raj: How do you know that?
    Howard: He was Italian, it's a reasonable assumption.

    Howard: I'm sorry Galileo drank diet sprite!

    All five are NFL long shots, but I hope they each get that shot. Damion Square is particularly a favorite of mine, so I'm especially hoping - somewhat against logic - he can impress somebody somewhere. If nothing else, I hope they get a good final memory of college football and make us proud once more.

    I think Square and Dial will definitely be playing on Sunday.

    5 Alabama Players to Participate in Raycom All-Star Classic

    You know they don't call it the Crampton Bowl for nothing. Back in August 05 I was rear ended right on Union Street across from the CB. I was feeling pain when I saw where I was, I said to my wife, now this is ironic as we both were in some pain. I was giving my wife a tour of MGM.

    Yes they do. Each team has one and that is all he does. Most are free agents but there were three in the NFL this year that were actually drafted. One in the 7th, and a couple in the 6th I believe. Carson is actually rated as the #1 LS in the draft this year so he has a really good chance to make it.

    yes, its unlikely a team would draft one, but a good LS has a ton of value in the NFL, typically everyteam keeps one on its roster and like kicker and punter you can have a pretty long career as long as you stay accurate and reliable. Odds are against you making the league just because the numbers but Tinker is the number one guy coming out this year and if he can beat out the other FA LS's floating around he can be one of the 32 to get a job. I'm pulling for him, we've had ridiculous luck with he and selman since saban showed up considering our ST woes.

    An update, Shelley kicked off to start the game and kicked it a yard deep in the end zone. From NFL distance at that. Go figure.

    I'm assuming Square wasn't at the game because I got his autograph today in Tuscaloosa. Haha.
