TUSCALOOSA, Alabama — If it looked as if Alabama defensive back Robert Lester was trying for a touchdown on his interception against Auburn, he was.
“I wanted to get a touchdown,” he said. “It would have been my first touchdown ever playing football. I tried, but it wasn’t happening.”
Lester returned it 31 yards before being brought down at the Auburn 29. Lester said he didn’t get a touchdown even when he played at Foley High with current Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones. Lester said he didn’t play much offense at Foley.
“We had Julio,” he said, smiling. “There was no need.”
