Al Afalava Gives Advice to Civil War Players
November 21, 2012, 2:07 pm
The big "Civil War" football game between Oregon and Oregon State takes place this coming up weekend and there's nobody better to give perspective on the showdown than a former player. Former Beavers DB Al Afalava joined BFT guest host Fletcher Johnson to talk about his "Civil War" memories and his career as a member of the Tennessee Titans.
Players that make the transition from college to NFL still carry the pride of the college football team with them. Al talked about whether or not he talks about the Beavers in the locker room in Tennessee.
"Every week the Beavers win I come in and brag about it and wear our gear and we'll have our friendly bets here and there."
The NFL has an age old tradition of playing football on Thanksgiving. Fletcher asks Al if he would rather be playing or watching football on Thanksgiving.
"I think I would rather watch the games on the coach and you get to relax and eat all day and watch football all day."
Al and Fletcher also discuss the "Civil War" game and the NFL's concussion issues including penalties for helmet-to-helmet contact.
