Alabama’s offense enjoys Thursday night burger tradition

Alabama Crimson Tide preps for Orange Bowl

TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) - Alabama’s offense started a new tradition this football season. Every Thursday night, the Tide’s offensive players, like Henry Ruggs, Tua Tagovailoa, and several others, go over to Offensive Coordinator and new Maryland Head Football Coach Mike Locksley’s house.

“The Thursday nights was supposed to be a secret society. It’s almost like those rave parties where you don’t get invited then people show up, there’s a secret password,” Locksley said.

Locksley said he grills gourmet burgers, and him and the players watch football games.

“We went over there and ate the burgers, and they were pretty good so we were like, ‘you have to do this every week,’ and we have. So now when I go over there I started competing of who can eat the most burgers,” said Tide wide receiver Henry Ruggs.

No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Oklahoma kickoff at 7 p.m. CT at Hard Rock Stadium Saturday in Miami, Florida.
