Former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones can add another honor to his trophy case from the 2020 season. The College Sports Information Directors of America announced Monday that Jones along with teammate Landon Dickerson were both named to the 2020-21 CoSIDA Academic All-America Division 1 Football First team. Jones received special recognition as he was named the Football Academic All-American of the Year.
Alabama fans can celebrate Dickerson's selection into the NFL by watching the NFL Draft with him and his family this weekend. The lovable center will be hosting a live viewing of his draft party on Friday, April 30 at 6 p.m. hosted by 23/7 Live.
At Alabama's second Pro Day, Dickerson cartwheeled through a Mac Jones interview, showing his athleticism and his sense of humor. The loveable center spins through the shot just four months after tearing his ACL in the SEC Championship Game against Florida and look of satisfaction creeps across his face. He looks happy to display how far he has come in his recovery and to have thrown his quarterback off in his interview.
The Alabama Crimson Tide has put together a historic 12-0 season with its eyes of finishing the year with a national championship game win against Ohio State on Monday. With immense team success, already an SEC Championship and a Rose Bowl win, comes individual honors. The Crimson Tide received numerous individual awards on last night's college football awards show.
