Christian Barmore captured Defensive MVP and made first-round money in CFP title game

A nonstop work ethic before the 2020 college football season helped more than Najee Harris.

Following a victory over Michigan in the Citrus Bowl to end the 2019 campaign, Christian Barmore found himself back in his hometown of Philadelphia (Pa.) with Coach Troy Gore. He trained with Gore throughout his high school tenure and it got Barmore the recognition of being a four-star recruit, upon coming to the University of Alabama in the 2018 signing class.

No matter what drills or exercises were thrown at him, Gore put the massive beast to work.

When he returned to the Crimson Tide in the fall, Barmore was set to be a consistent threat.
