September 8, 2010 – Former Dutchtown High School RB Eddie Lacy ran for 111 yards and 2 TDs on just 13 carries for Alabama in their opener. Eddie is the team’s third team back.
|LB Brian Duncan – Texas Tech|
Former Tara High School LB Brian Duncan (6-1, 241) lead Texas Tech with 3 sacks and 5 tackles all in a day’s work for the stud LB, who also has over 200 career tackles going into the 2010 season.
Damaris Johnson, former Destrehan High School star, led Tulsa in week one with 151 all purpose return yards, 4 catches for 51 yards and 56 yards rushing with 1 TD.
Brandon Bolden, RB for Ole Miss and former Scotlandville High School football player, rushed for 104 yards, 1 TD, and caught one pass for 34 yards.
Damien Jackson (6-2, 200), FS from Ole Miss and former Pineville High School Star, had 11 tackles in his first game as a college player. Damien was just signed from a Junior College this past 2010 class.
|Punter Cody Mandell – Alabama|
Cody Mandell, a former Acadiana High School stud at Punter, signed with Tulane for the 2010 class, but did not enroll and started game 1 for Alabama, and all he did was average 40 yards a punt in game one, with a great hang time. Mandell is 6-4 and weighs 201 pounds.
Dexter McCoil (6-4, 185), FS from Lutcher High School, lead Tulsa with 7 tackles, and actually would have had more, but left game for a few plays because of an injury.
DE Tyrann Walker (6-3, 250), a former Westgate High School star, had 7 tackles and several rushes in his first game for Tulsa. Walker signed in the 2010 class, and to me was the best looking DE I’ve seen in a while come out of Louisiana. Walker signed from a Junior College in the 2010 class. This kid is a man among boys on the field.
