THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Barrett Jones is a former Alabama offensive lineman who was a member of three national championship teams under head coach Nick Saban. Jones played a different position in each of those championship seasons, as an All-American guard, an All-American right tackle, and an All-American center. He was also awarded the Outland Trophy (best lineman in college football) in 2011.
Following his college career, Jones was selected in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Due to injuries, his career only lasted three years; by 2017, his pro football career was over at age 26.
Recently, he’s been working as a color analyst on college football broadcasts with ESPN Radio.
Today on the podcast, we talk to Jones about winning championships at Alabama, what makes coach Nick Saban special, what it means to commit to the process, the identity crisis he went through, and the difference between justification and sanctification.
After an offseason filled with uncertainty, somehow College Football ended up with an unbelievable product. The all-conference schedules are amazing. It’s hard for me to remember a more enjoyable regular season day of football watching than yesterday. Great games everywhere!
