Thoughts on A-Day game: “Alabama played with a lot of energy. You could feel the intensity that they played with. It was an exciting and fast pace game. The atmosphere was like a real game, not just a spring game. You can tell these guys are use to competing.”
High School Spring Game: “Since we have a new coach, I am excited about getting back on the field and starting the process to learn what things might change in our scheme. I will not to start on Monday because baseball playoffs do not start until May 2nd, but I will be ready to go right after baseball is over.”
How has 7v7 improved you game: “Playing 7on7 for Tight Action Sports has helped me be more comfortable in space. When I have to step out and cover a slot or a back out the back field, I better understand the routes because of 7on7. Playing 7on7 also helps me get ready for camps. When I have to do 1-on-1’s at a camp, it comes easy because I have had to cover the same type of players at a tournament. Especially playing 7on7 in Florida, you see the best of the best. Since I am a 4 star everyone wants the chance to win a rep against me, so I have to be ready every snap. We compete every practice.”
Coach Harrison’s thoughts on Amari: “Every player that plays 7on7 with me will return back to his high school team a better player. I guarantee that. For example, I play Amari some at wide receiver because it helps him to understand what a receiver is trying to do because he has had a chance to play receiver in 7on7. Coach Korn (Tight Action’s secondary coach and former college coach) is one of the best in the business at teaching coverage concepts and techniques.
