On Sunday, the University of Alabama football program released a teaser video highlighting the renovated locker rooms at the Mal M. Moore Athletic Facility.
Today, a video was released on Twitter that shows the moments of when Crimson Tide players got to see their ones lockers for the first time.
“It’s got all the little gadgets and stuff that you need,” redshirt junior quarterback Mac Jones said in the clip. “Take some naps and get ready for practice.”
The new locker room is just another step in the modern recruiting wars in college football, and this one has it all. Leather recliners, plenty of storage space, a pool, and more.
“It’s a blessing, man,” redshirt senior offensive lineman Chris Owens said. “It’s the best in the country. You can’t get no better than ‘Bama.”
Last month on the Crimson Tide Sports Network Summer Update Show, Alabama athletic director Greg Byrne gave an update regarding the work done at the facility along with construction at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
“Mal Moore’s actually coming together here very well,” Byrne said. “I took a tour a few days ago, and it’s really impressive to see. We’re getting this building and facility set up for the next 10, 15, 20 years so it can continue to really serve our student-athletes, our coaches, our staff, and at the same time, too, it helps us make sure we always have the legacy of Mal Moore at the forefront of what we do and what a great man and what a wonderful athletic director, coach (he was). So, that’s going well.
“And over at Bryant-Denny, a lot of good progress there. We’re going to be full steam ahead. A lot of parts of the project are getting close to being completed, but obviously, we have a lot of balls up in the air there, whether it’s the locker room, the recruiting area, the new club areas, videoboards and some of the things we’re doing from a concourse standpoint. But I’m looking forward to when we have the finished product, and I’m also looking forward to when we all get to be in there together again.”
