University of Alabama running back Derrick Henry has been waiting his turn for a shot at the starting job out of the Crimson Tide’s backfield for a two years.
With last season’s running mate T.J. Yeldon off to the NFL, he figures to get the lion share of the workload this season. But don’t expect the 240-plus pound bruiser to simply be handed the job. Henry’s workout outside the weight room includes pushing a Ford F-150 and flipping a giant truck tire.
One of Alabama’s tag lines for it’s football team is “Built by Bama.” Now, it looks like being Built by Bama means being “Built Ford Tough.”
