TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -

Senior Chance Warmack is in his third season as the Crimson Tide's starting left guard. The talented lineman was named honorable mention All-American by Pro Football weekly last season and placed on the second-team All-SEC team by the league's coaches. But this year Warmack has improved immensely.

After his impressive blocking performance against Arkansas, Warmack was named SEC Offensive Lineman of the week. When asked about Warmack's improvements since his freshman year at Alabama, head coach Nick Saban was happy to offer a rare compliment to the talented athlete.

"Playing well means something to him," Saban said. "He is a very competitive guy. He is very physical [and] has lots of toughness. He has exceeded expectations in terms of the way he has played."

Warmack's teammates also had a number of positive things to say about his motivating work-ethic and passion for the game. Watch the full story on the football player who many expect to be Alabama's highest pick in the 2013 NFL draft right here on MyFoxAl.com.
