Buford High School tight end Kurt Freitag, who committed to Alabama over Florida on Monday, believes the Crimson Tide deserved a spot in the BCS championship against LSU.
“I was at the first LSU-Alabama game, and it was the most unreal atmosphere I’ve ever seen,” Freitag said. “I think there should be a rematch because they’re the two best teams in college football. I think Alabama should be given another chance. It should be a really good game. It’s always hard to beat a team twice in one season, but LSU is really good.”
Alabama beat out Florida for the 6-foot-3, 250-pound Freitag. “I liked the coaches and the football program. The facilities are top of the line, and they have a great football tradition like Buford does. It’s not too far from home, and every time I’ve visited there it was a positive atmosphere. They’ve got some of the greatest fans in the country. I think by choosing Alabama, it will set me up for success in the future.”
Freitag is the second Buford senior to commit to Alabama, following in the footsteps of AJC Super 11 linebacker Dillon Lee. “It wasn’t a package deal,” Freitag said with a laugh. “I mean, when we were sophomores, we talked about playing together in college. It worked out that way … but we each picked Alabama for our own reasons.
