It was getting late in Saturday’s win over Arkansas when Alabama’s Barrett Jones dug his hand in the dirt, looked to his side and saw a friendly face.
One or two pair of brothers on the team lined up next to each other toward the end of the game. Tight end Harrison Jones flanked big brother Barrett, who had shifted from left to right tackle in the closing moments.
They were neighbors on the line a few times in high school, but never at Alabama.
Barrett Jones said he saw his redshirt freshman brother in the huddle Saturday, but didn’t think too much of it when trotting to the line.
“And I turned and was like, ‘Hey, what’s up?’ ” Barrett Jones said. “And he was like, ‘What’s up?’ Then he was like, ‘Who do I block?’ And I was like, ‘Get that guy over there.’ ”
The memories of their brief moment together will certainly last.
“I’m hoping somebody got a picture of it,” Barrett Jones said. “I haven’t seen one yet.”
Read a few more notes like this one in today’s paper and every other one this week.
Update: The mistake in the second paragraph was corrected. I’m not sure how I forgot the other pair of brothers — Arie and Cyrus Kouandjio.
