TUSCALOOSA – From just the right angle, it might seem like Derrick Henry is the only running back participating in spring drills.Standing at 6-foot-3 and 242 pounds, the junior nearly dwarfs his fellow Crimson Tide running backs, especially when he’s preparing to lead them in a drill as Alabama’s unquestioned No. 1 tailback.And, after spending his first two seasons working behind now-former Alabama tailback T.J. Yeldon, Henry’s taking that new distinction and running with it.“I accept that role as being a leader,” Henry said this week. “I just want to make everybody better around me and just get them to push themselves, because I’m going to give it my all every time I’m out there and just try to make the team better.”That leadership role is one the 20-year-old Yulee, Florida, native is carrying around with great pride, and it’s shown in every part of his daily approach.“He’s one of the hardest workers on our team,” Alabama head coach Nick Saban said. “If you were going to give a most valuable player in the offseason program for just finishing, running hard, winning every race, finishing the drill, he’d have probably got it or been in the top three at least. I think that he has a real burning desire to be a really, really good player and works really hard at it.”Saban said the only real concern with Henry is keeping him level and not so fixated on being great that he gets “anxious” or “frustrated” and it becomes a negative.“It’s almost like a basketball player that’s supposed to be a great scorer and he only has two points at halftime and he’s pulling his hair out,” Saban said. “You really don’t want that — maybe he’ll score 24 in the next half. But you’ve got to just focus on what you’re doing right now, knowing that if you do it right, you’re going to have success and don’t worry about that.”Known as a big and physical runner, Henry hasn’t always been considered an all-around running back, especially when it came to blocking out of the backfield.But, just like with his role as Alabama’s top tailback, that too came in time.“That was a big transition, and I feel like the older you are and more you play football you learn a lot more about blocking technique,” Henry said. “That’s big here. Coach (Saban) really emphasizes that we have to block, like, a lot and I feel like I’ve gotten better. Just to the younger guys, I emphasize to them that blocking is a big deal and in college football, you’ve got to learn how to block to be able to play.”And at least according to his head coach, Henry’s more than made that transition as he enters his third spring at Alabama.“I think Derrick Henry has improved in all aspects of the game where he doesn’t have the ball — which includes blocking, which includes being a better receiver, understanding pass protections (like) when you need to get out, when you can’t,” Saban said.That improvement, and the reemergence of a healthy Kenyan Drake, has many around Alabama eager to see what the backfield duo will do this coming season.Drake, a senior, is back in action just five months removed from a gruesome broken left leg suffered Oct. 4, 2014 when he was sandwiched between two Ole Miss defenders, including one that went low as his left leg snapped and his foot dangled the wrong way.Back after spending two months in a walking boot, Drake’s rapid recovery didn’t come as a surprise to those that know him best, especially Henry.“No, I wasn’t surprised at all because I knew the tough person he is, he’s going to work hard because he loves the game,” Henry said. “He loves playing the game and he missed being out there. I knew he’d do anything and work hard to get back out there.”In an effort to expand his role, Drake has been seeing more time working with receivers at practice this week as Tide coaches try to further take advantage of his natural pass-catching abilities.“Derrick Henry and him both are pretty dynamic players for us that are really good playmakers so we’re going to explore every way possible that we can get those guys the ball,” Saban said. “So far, Kenyan has been very good as a back coming out of the backfield and the matchups that he gets with that and we’ll continue to explore ways to do that. But we might have some personnel groups where we play those two guys together. I think both of those scenarios are the reason you’re seeing what you see.”The idea of having both Drake and Henry in the backfield at the same time, or slotting Drake out wide at receiver with Henry at tailback, could add a new dimension to Alabama’s offense in the second year under offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin.“Kenyan’s a great receiver out of the backfield. Me in the backfield and him at receiver, you really wouldn’t know what’s coming or who’s getting the ball,” Henry said.Saban may have even given his next great running back tandem its own celebrity nickname — Kendrick, a mashup of their first names that resulted when Saban momentarily stuttered while speaking about the two.Whatever the pair is called, both Drake and Henry have the potential to provide Alabama’s offense a major boost this coming season.And given how far each has come in just the last year, Saban plans to take full advantage of both as frequently as he can this fall.“Kenyan Drake I think has a better understanding — (though he’s) not quite as big and as physical as Derrick — but I trust both those guys to be able to do a good job in that regard,” Saban said. “They’ve definitely made a lot of progress.“But they also have the capability of making a lot of plays, so we definitely want them on the field as much as possible.”

Barbados confiscates skin bleaching creamsBarbados health authorities say they have confiscated creams being advertised here to lighten their skin amid various health concerns. The Barbados Drug Service (BDS) said the creams found on store shelves are advertised to lighten the skin, but which may also cause a variety of complications.The BDS said that under the instructions of the Barbados Pharmacy Council, it has confiscated all products deemed to contravene the Second Schedule of the Pharmacy Act, CAP 372D.“There has been a surge in the use of steroidal creams to lighten the skin. The creams are being sold in some beauty supply stores in Barbados. These products are given various names designed to attract attention as beautifying agents, without any warning of the dangers of using them,” the BDS said.The Drug Service has identified the list of complications from using these products as atrophy or wasting away at the site of application, rosacea, irritancy, and allergy, among other complications. It further advised that the internal absorption of topical steroids could cause a mild Cushing’s syndrome reaction, or could suppress the patient’s own cortisol supply.

Texas A&M’s rivalry game against No. 8 LSU was one for the ages as the Aggies found a way to top the Tigers in the highest scoring game in FBS history. Both teams put up some crazy stats because the game lasted as long as it did. LSU finished with 521 total yards, while A&M finished with 496. Joe Burrow had 270 yards and three touchdowns (not including three rushing), while Kellen Mond had six passing touchdowns and one rushing.But the even crazier facts come with how historic the game was. Here are six crazy facts from the Aggies thrilling victory: The seven-overtime game tied the NCAA record for most overtimes in an FBS game. But It was the first game with as many overtimes that included a ranked team.The 146 combined points are the most in an FBS game in NCAA history and the second-most in college football history behind the 161 points Abilene Christian and West Texas A&M scored in Abilene Christian’s 93-68 win in 2008, according to ESPN. The previous record of 139 points was set in Western Michigan’s 71-68 win against Buffalo a year ago, also in overtime.The 74 points LSU allowed are the most ever given up by a ranked team, eclipsing the 73 No. 24 Fresno State gave up to Northern Illinois on Oct. 6, 1990. It was the first game in the AP poll era in which both teams scored 70 points, according to ESPN Stats & Information. The Aggie’s 24 points are more points than Texas A&M’s basketball team has scored in 4 of 6 games this season.The Tigers had scored a combined 79 points in their previous four SEC games. The Aggies won 74-72 after seven overtimes in a hard fought battle and it was certainly heartbreaker for LSU as there was some controversy down the stretch.
