There are decades where nothing happens. But there are weeks that feels like decades happen. A lot going on with scheduling college football, NFL, no preseason, and today we have a special guest Today another Alabama special of course. But first we’re gonna introduce our co host for today’s show a person that wears a mask when he goes to the grocery store. Justin Riley, welcome back to the sports cast.
Justin Riley 1:11
Hey, glad to be here on Tuesday and Tuesdays usually mean we’re spending time with a former Alabama legend so I’m pretty excited. And yes, I do wear a mask in the grocery stores. Over here.
Santiago Leon 1:25
So, Justin, obviously you had a big tournament that you’ve been talking about this past couple weeks. How did it go?
Justin Riley 1:33
Yeah, I did have a powerlifting meet this past Saturday and Hattiesburg Mississippi. We pretty well I actually by the grace of God one not one mind division. Unfortunately on my last lift, though, a deadlift, I sprained a muscle, my lower back, I finished a lift, I locked it out. I set it down, got the white lights, so it counted but as soon as I was done And I collapsed. And I’ve been really struggling this week with some severe back pain and spasms and not a lot of fun stuff. Right now I’m sitting comfortably to where I’m okay. couldn’t miss this podcast.
Santiago Leon 2:14
So here I am. Of course Johnson has the butt cushion on so things should be good for the show. Oh, let’s go into breaking news. Players were informed by the NFLPA leadership that there’ll be no NFL preseason games for this year. Justin, was this a good call?
Justin Riley 2:38
Yes and No, but you kind of had the feeling was eventually going to go this way. Originally, I think it was less than two two games, but I just kind of felt in the back of my mind. Eventually they’re gonna call it off. This really does hurt some of those players who weren’t drafted or maybe were drafted in the later rounds. are really trying to establish themselves and make make a case for themselves to make their respective teams. I kind of feel for those guys because usually the preseason is their time to showcase why NFL teams should take a chance on them and why they should keep them around. They will have that opportunity now.
Santiago Leon 3:21
And of course the NFL decided about a couple weeks ago that they wanted to announce onto for no preseason matches. We’ll see what happens in the regular season. I’m gonna keep an eye on that because I could see this possibility Justin of being pushed back the regular season till October. It’s quite
Justin Riley 3:39
possible. I think there’s a lot of chatter going on about leading to that. We’ll have to see. Right now my sights are set, you know, for the regular start.
Santiago Leon 3:52
Another news, the NFL Michael Bennett retires. Justin remembers him really briefly what a legend for Seattle?
Justin Riley 4:01
Oh, absolutely. You know one of the last remaining members of the Legion of boom tremendous player in his position for a number of years. Wherever he’s gone he’s made an impact and, uh, you know, every great career comes to a close and for Michael Bennett that Tom is now
Santiago Leon 4:18
according to reporter Tyler Turner colleges are flirting about spring football and playing playing in the fall. You think that will happen?
Justin Riley 4:29
You know, I think that there are a lot of outlets right now and trying to push this and maybe for story, maybe to get clicks or viewers but I haven’t heard any major outlets talk about this. I really don’t feel like there’s any validity to it. I think if you push back football as a season to the spring is going to create unwanted chaos because of the other spring sports TV scheduling and just everything involved. I just don’t think it will be a benefit and will is absolutely necessary. The complexity of college football’s definitely come into play in the next couple of weeks, but we’ll see what happens. The SEC is going to have a meeting next week to decide what’s going to happen. They are pushing for a full season. So we’ll definitely keep an eye on that. Justin Riley, can
Santiago Leon 5:20

Justin Riley 5:23
Always do. But first, during the pandemic, we’ve been encouraged to support our local businesses ramaa jammas has afforded the alabama football community for over 20 years. They’ve been a staple in the gameday experience for as long as I can remember. So Stop in today support the greatest local business I know of that’s ramaa jammas definitely get some great food. All right. Without further ado, I’m pretty excited about this. I know Alabama nation is excited about this and hearing feedback for the past several weeks about this guest he is a two time BCS National Champion two time sec champ. In a played in the 2015 Senior bowl he was a member of the Tennessee Titans Seattle Seahawks Atlanta Falcons. He also made the 2016 Pro Bowl as an alternate.

We play sports literally every day with it. Papa ball, kickball football. It was it was a ball in the fall we was good. That’s definitely true. Because when you’re in hospital, you play football, but you ran track and you play basketball as well, man. What was your high school experience like? And you know, tell us a little bit about the recruiting process.
Santiago Leon 7:35
What High School is like the high school experience first, then we’ll get into recruiting a little bit deeper.
Jalston Fowler 7:40
I love High School in high school. I mean, it was pretty hard. It wasn’t hard, but it was pretty hard for me because I had some catching up to do. I was the guy that had to graduate early because my past failures was like in seventh grade. I had trouble getting out of seventh grade and my coach told me when I first got to high school I had to make a and b. And he just stayed on my behind and just made sure I did everything I had to do to get those A’s and B’s.
Santiago Leon 8:12
That’s definitely good. Good advice. Tell me, um, were you able to play JV football or were you able to go, you know, straight to the senior team.
Jalston Fowler 8:23
I had to play See, I had to go straight to the senior team. I didn’t have a freshman year. I actually started running back my freshman year, but I had a couple of injuries that year. And the next year, my final year, I moved to defense in my 10th grade year, my 11th grade year, which was my last year because I couldn’t play my senior year is when I got my my my recruitment got going pretty good.
Santiago Leon 8:49
And he tell us about the recruitment what teams were interested early on, and who do you end up with?
Jalston Fowler 8:55
Is Cray the arm? Actually nobody was interested at first Whenever the Alabama you know, on accounts you play this game called Bella ball, man but you should say I’m just putting on the show at Bama ball we, we can and everybody I’m jumping over everybody by running running through everybody in the coaches like all the coaches stop just to watch me and Blake play demo. That’s how the recruitment started. And one day I was on the web All Star game coasties and conco say well, I don’t know how to do it. Either. He called go Sam, Uncle Sam and call him and that got the ball rolling. So Sam said we’re gonna give you a scholarship and I did that we had Tennessee come in Florida State. And some more. Some of us who
Santiago Leon 9:46
were able to talk to Nick Saban
Jalston Fowler 9:51
had thought would
Santiago Leon 9:53
be awesome, man. How was how was the um, his demeanor? How was his vibe when you when you were We’re going to speak to him.
Jalston Fowler 10:01
It was he was pretty cool. He just told me Oh Johnston, we’re gonna recruit you want to come in play at the University of Alabama? We don’t want you talk to anybody else. We want you to stay strictly with us because we’ve taken a chance on you when nobody else does.
Justin Riley 10:21
You did have the opportunity to pretty much go anywhere you wanted. However, you know when making your decision, your mom helped you choose your destination. What is she and you feel like Alabama was the best place for you?
Jalston Fowler 10:35
Well, for me, it was it was there. Alabama, Florida State. Jimbo combi like the day a day before i both know went to Alabama it was different like Johnston. If you come to Florida State you won’t have to fit behind Trent Richardson anymore. It’ll be it’ll be all about you. And I’m just missing the jumbo but I’m like man, he got so excited. Now my mom, I would like to talk about his war with me to bring me up on stage. Show me around campus. I want you to go to Alabama. This is what I want you to do. I said hi mom. And my mom like one of my beagles and snore.
Santiago Leon 11:22
Wow. And how was Jim Bose? Like, how was your experience with him?
Jalston Fowler 11:27
I mean, it was good. It was only one day because we had a guy down here in South University of Alabama, which they also recruited me. I’m Damien Cray. He was the army guy. He was just like, newtek man. Everybody called me duty. Duty may tell you, man, I’ll go to Alabama man. Come on, man. I’m telling him. It’s gonna be it’s gonna be your it’s gonna be your spot. Auburn to na XP Wasn’t there and he ended on Alabama on J. Willis. Alabama to recruit me heavy.
Santiago Leon 12:09
So FSU was your close second. Uh huh. Interesting.
Jalston Fowler 12:15
Let’s say lane and last Thompson also came down. They wanted me to come to Tennessee.
Santiago Leon 12:23
Wow, it’s funny. We always hear Tennessee, Alabama and then maybe a Clemson or FSU when it comes to recruitment because we’ve been interviewing Alabama what like eight different players, right. Justin is usually like those three teams typically.
Justin Riley 12:40
Yeah, without doubt you do. Tennessee is definitely been mentioned with each player we’ve had on the show is one of the major schools. They were on the list. So yeah, it is pretty interesting.
Santiago Leon 12:53
Like they have boots on the ground in Alabama period.
Jalston Fowler 12:56
Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Especially with the T morning thing going on. Here’s a guy from the mobile area who makes you bank.
Justin Riley 13:08
Of course, you did choose Alabama so I’m pretty excited about that. Thank you. Oh yeah, we did when we were in Alabama nation appreciate it. Alabama is known for producing some of the greatest fullbacks in college but also the NFL. But major Ogilvy Kevin Turner, Taryn Lynch, Lauren McClain, you are the next in line what goals Did you set for yourself? And was there any pressure following such a legendary bunch?
Jalston Fowler 13:35
No, I wasn’t any person I was just pushing myself to get on the field know what I prided myself on my day was the cost savings that I could really play football like, which I have been doing my whole life. And I’m just trying to show them and prove to them guys to play ball. It wasn’t no no pressure into the situation.
Justin Riley 13:55
Speaking of that, not add the full full back position. You are Does a blogger excellent receiver and could run the ball? Like a smoother drone Bettis when you arrive? It will.
Santiago Leon 14:07
How about that? How about that mmm Johnson How about that praise you like that? Oh hello I’m
Jalston Fowler 14:15
a big guy run all the time. I wanted to
Justin Riley 14:17
man I saw a lot of his running style and you so I had to make that comparison. They’re inspirational. You know? When you arrived It was like you didn’t need any time to adjust. How are you able to come in on day one with a veteran mentality?
Jalston Fowler 14:33
Oh man, I gotta say I have something to prove. But the thing is when I first got Alabama thank god like dropping like flies we had a couple linebackers get hurt they movement in linebacker. Next thing you know all the running backs started getting hurt. What went down? They had an ankle injury. offenses, they kept me firmly
Santiago Leon 14:55
right time right place. Now Jocelyn Tell me what was the atmosphere like when you got Alabama, where it was a very championship vibe. Like what was your first impression when you first got there? This is all been co saving trying to get this program going. He screaming about business. No time to sleep. Just trying to go to work with him. Put your head into this zone and put your heart on me all steel toed boots on go to work, but has been there for three years when he got there, right.
Jalston Fowler 15:29
Justin Riley 15:32
Five years. Yeah.
Santiago Leon 15:33
Wow. Okay, so things were ready in business. Okay, go ahead. Just
Justin Riley 15:37
I’ll just gonna follow up with that. What was your relationship with like with Nick Saban? And what is something about him that we typically don’t see on TV?
Jalston Fowler 15:47
I tell everybody man, Coach Saban is a good hearted guy, like people see the Broken Heart side of them on a football field but get them in his office and get them to sell the Going over guy
Santiago Leon 16:02
Jalston Fowler 16:02
try to help you try to help you in a way you can.
Santiago Leon 16:06
Yeah and I like was I mean, Nick Saban is that that bill check guy you know that probably spends time watching videos of like I mean watching like all football games his demeanor I mean how it’s funny because I always hear this from a lot of reporters that he’s a perfectionist like distance had to follow it I mean how much of a margin of error that you guys had very slim you in doing that and right you’re getting influenced that right there on the spot he gonna put you on spotlight in front everybody.
Jalston Fowler 16:40
You don’t care who’s there, your mom could be there, he’s gonna be gone.
Santiago Leon 16:45
You’re that Justin.
Justin Riley 16:47
I got no doubt about that. But you know, one of the things I’ve always heard in addition to this, and I think he draws comparisons to a former legendary coach at Alabama. That’s Gene Stallings that he may have militaristic style of coaching. But his heart for his players was unmistakable and very large and definitely cared a lot about his players and I don’t think the media usually shows that as much as they should. Would you agree with that, Justin?
Jalston Fowler 17:14
Yeah, I agree with that totally.
Santiago Leon 17:18
Looks more approachable now.
Jalston Fowler 17:20
Oh, yeah. Well, like, man, we talked about that all the time when I get with the guys man. When I met Jose, when we try to watch john Cleese, begging, begging a day man we can cuss though. You are what you’re supposed to wear. Not banana stuff. Oh, God with everything. You can do that what we would do.
Justin Riley 17:45
One of the memories I’ve had is was against Ole Miss and bought Hemingway Stadium in 2011. And we rushed for 389 yards that night and of those 389 you contributed 125 yourself. Many feel including myself. If this was your breakout moment, what did this mean to you as far as establishing yourself at Alabama admit a lot to
Jalston Fowler 18:07
me. I mean, any chance that I got just to prove myself I was trying to prove myself. And then he gave me that opportunity to play against Ole Miss. I wasn’t gonna let him down. I’m gonna put my best foot forward and cold burn because they had a token they say they believed in me, so they gave me a lot. A lot. A lot of confidence to
Santiago Leon 18:29
Justin, what was your most memorable game in college football?
Jalston Fowler 18:33
Man, so many good ones, man. I can’t I can’t just pick one. But I know a lot of people are. I love the taste and M game because yeah, Johnny football came to Tuscaloosa. Right ended up winning the Heisman game. And I came back the next year and I had like a great a good game against those guys next following year and caught the game winning touchdown
Santiago Leon 18:59
Alabama. Johnny Manziel Oh,
Justin Riley 19:03
man, I remember all that too well and man that that image of you catching that pass. It’s the end seal that victory man is one of the greatest moments I’ve ever experienced not and men a lot more because we got to shut down Johnny Manziel. So that that was a great moment. Oh, you know, during your time in Alabama, you had the unique opportunity to play for and win not one but two national championships. You also were the first year in the first college football playoff game. Can you describe what it felt like? And how did you prepare yourself to play on such a big stage? The playoff game? And then well, just all of them together like the total experience, you know?
Jalston Fowler 19:45
You say cost savings and professing he just told us about their workout but watch plenty of film. We we practice hard and just went at it. Maybe just prepare. Like everybody did. One. Just me, everybody. Apparently got ready for battle?
Santiago Leon 20:04
Who do you think Nick Saban wished him? Did he really? Or I’m sorry? Which school? Did he really disliked the most? Do you have any type of vibe of that?
Jalston Fowler 20:13
He really I think he really hated Auburn. And you know, yeah, he would have hated Harvard and I think he really one more school Okay, thank you always I hate the sob. I just can’t think of a team right now.
Santiago Leon 20:28
Who was good back then. Uh, Justin was it like Clemson Oh, yeah.
Justin Riley 20:34
It was a team they were filming yesterday
Jalston Fowler 20:39
is a man more Mississippi State. Somebody like that? He can really he can say I know you like that’s one sneaky guy. The kickstand and sob Yeah, wrong.
Santiago Leon 20:50
Yeah, that which is, which is a tricky place to play. Sometimes it can be really easy, but also could be hard. It’s like a wild card game. Who Who, who was the greatest player that you played with in college football? And also who was the best player that you played against?
Jalston Fowler 21:11
I say play them a lot of great players cam had a great game when he started off slapping for him. But Johnny football one of the best with all the stuff he was going against us. It was like amazing like, how you were just making plays it teed me off by like, Man, this is great. I have never seen anything like
Santiago Leon 21:31
he was the real deal, which I told Justin that but I mean, he’s, he he’s still not a believer.
Justin Riley 21:37
Now, I thought he was the he was the real deal in college. I didn’t really believe what he was going through. So that would translate well but you know that Texas a&m game does stick out my mind the most and I’m still surprised to this day we were able to allow them to surprise us like that, but you know it and ultimately, you know, we got back on track. We want to national title. Oh yeah.
Santiago Leon 22:02
How was that feeling?
Jalston Fowler 22:05
I mean, I was it was amazing filming man like I started out with a great you know we and we play Michigan our first game. I had a great game against them then I end up and I would just cheer cheer him on guys.
Justin Riley 22:28
You definitely balled out in that Michigan game. A lot of the highlights I see is you just plowing through everybody there and they really have an answer. I didn’t seem like they were ready for that brand of physicality.
Jalston Fowler 22:43
That it was I don’t think they were I mean, I think they underestimated how hot we were.
Justin Riley 22:51
Who did you have a chance to really mentor you know, towards the end of your time in Alabama.
Jalston Fowler 22:57
There. There was like a little boy To me exhibit Dixon here when we hung out all the time, but yeah, I used to talk to Derek a lot, man. And he still still to this day I talk to him every now and then. We keep up with each other.
Santiago Leon 23:16
We think about his contract he signed recently.
Jalston Fowler 23:19
Big money, big money, big money.
Justin Riley 23:24
Speaking of that should have been taken care of first and foremost. That huge contract they gave tannehill Great question.
Jalston Fowler 23:34
Yeah, I feel like they said it looked out for him first, even though Tennant Hill had a great year, but I think everything went through Derek. Right.
Santiago Leon 23:44
Yeah, wish the coach was definitely more of a running bag type of team, you know, go first to him. Back to Alabama. You know, some people say that that 2011 team was the best Alabama Nick Saban team. Would you agree with that?
Jalston Fowler 24:01
I agree with that. I mean, we’re pretty good at real, like the real talk last night. 2010 teen was the best team that he ever had. But we just we enlarge the game. We just want to focus and we end up losing a couple games that year, but I think that’s the best team that he ever had. During this time Alabama,
Santiago Leon 24:21
who, who like the closest to in the team, who’s your brother?
Jalston Fowler 24:27
Man, Xavier de Saint Jerry Williams. Most of the guy from OBJ Scott. Um, oh, man. Yeah, we will try right turn was like my brother. Like we were closing in like most, most of the guys. We used to go everywhere together. I used to, I had to go run down car, a beer, a beer table, and he just come to me and say, Man, let me see the car and he’ll just take off.
Santiago Leon 24:53
What do you think? Richardson hasn’t done well, professionally. Like, what do you think is the Issue,
Jalston Fowler 25:02
man is my man. He’s trying to take care of a lot of people man and he didn’t go too well for me. I mean, I understand how they can break you physically and mentally. So I understand what happened to him.
Justin Riley 25:18
Sticking with that, would you say the greater pressure in the NFL is you making the team or is it more so dealing with all the people step into your life after that and try to get a piece of what you have. are really like the wrong crowds around you.
Jalston Fowler 25:35
It pretty much pretty much I say those to those who run neck and neck pretty much trying to make the team try and do your best. Sometimes you feel like your best not enough then the guys coming you keep by they need a boost you up will tell you though, and I think some guys get mixed up trying to live that rock star lifestyle. And it just doesn’t pan out for
Santiago Leon 25:58
ya. Which reminds me That player from Texas the quarterback in Oh 506 Yeah, that Yeah, very similar very sad, very talented college but in football definitely went downhill. Johnson Tell me your process of for the NFL draft and into the NFL Draft. How was that about what our scouts telling you?
Jalston Fowler 26:21
I was having like late third, early fourth, fifth round. I never heard anything less than that. And during the whole process, I would just just sit back relax and just training. I mean, I didn’t too much focus on it. I was just praying and hoping that I got P and by the grace of God I end up going in the fourth round at
Justin Riley 26:43
and you had a chance to play in the senior bowl. What was your experience like with that and how do you feel like it prepares you for not only the draft but also for the NFL itself
Jalston Fowler 26:53
and get you a firsthand look on how things were in the NFL. Like how how, how much to the detail had to pay to come to the playbook, the plays. Like in the NFL, everything’s still faster in college. And in the senior bowl, we learned that that aspect of the game
Santiago Leon 27:14
What was your first major purchase when you got your first check?
Jalston Fowler 27:19
I didn’t buy anything but I bought my mom a Mercedes Benz. That was the first day
Santiago Leon 27:25
just well, like would probably do the same thing.
Justin Riley 27:31
Oh, absolutely. Absolutely, man. I mean, you take care of mama first. You know? That’s one of the things that is most important was ingrained to me coming especially in the south man and family is everything you got. Take your family, especially Mama. Oh, yeah.
Santiago Leon 27:48

But those they really help everybody out like literally helped everybody like the biggest guy will really help everybody was he was a great mentor and I got a great guy to look up to.
Justin Riley 28:26
Your NFL career got off to a great start. You’re heavily involved in success, Titans, all fans and even as an alternate what helped you make that transition transition so easily?
Jalston Fowler 28:41
I mean, me I wasn’t the best guy when it comes to studying but when I went out on that field, I was trying to live like they say I was trying to kill somebody. I was trying to help my team at all costs. Like I just I just want to be a winner. I mean, from high school. Till I got to the NFL, I was a woman. And that’s all I knew how to do. Was it?
Santiago Leon 29:09
What was your best game with the Titans?
Jalston Fowler 29:12
I think my best game I had was against a coach. I think I had like two touchdown, but we ended up losing. Because on a two point conversion I was trying to make something out none but I still say that was my
Justin Riley 29:29
title. Yeah, Bri stops in Seattle and Atlanta. did return to Tennessee before bringing a close to NFL career. What eventually led you to step away from the NFL?
Jalston Fowler 29:41
Well, I just felt like it was a lot of politics and there was a lot of guys like I wasn’t they said I wasn’t planning to my potential. And then they just say I started my own production started going down here and it just says I wasn’t I wasn’t, I wasn’t playing good. Then I got cut by the Tennessee time I went to Seattle. It was telling me that it was gonna give me a chance to play and when the time came they kept putting God in front of me and eventually I ended up having hamstring problems due to my weight.
When that happened, they cooked meat then I got picked up by an animal which I think went really well but in the process, I just got there a little bit too late. And it was it was too late for me to even be able to make the impact but they really liked me in the end up they end up saying if they needed me or if anything was to happen today for but it will be forgotten. I missed a call. Then I end up going back to Tennessee and plan for them. And I got up there and I feel like everything was going pretty good again, like a week. It was like a week and I told my wife To move up, I told her to bring the kids in, they cut me and I’m thinking everything is going smoothly. And I’m like, man, I can’t keep doing this to my family. I can’t keep doing this to myself. It broke me down mentally
Santiago Leon 31:15
with these processes, and then after that, what are you trying to do it again, to get back to the NFL? Like, like what made you like, no more, no more.
Jalston Fowler 31:30
I just got to the point where I was like, I just really want to be with my kids and just have held time and like, watch my kids grow, like be a part of their life because I know the NFL will take away a lot of time from your kids and your family.
Santiago Leon 31:44
Was there any interest from like the CFL or from like arena football?
Jalston Fowler 31:49
Yeah, actually, not too long ago. A guy called me about the arena football, but I tell him it’s not about coaching. I don’t
Santiago Leon 32:00
About the Alliance like the Football League that have been about two years ago.
Jalston Fowler 32:04
I told him I, I tell everybody like if you feel like it’s not worth your time. Yeah.
Santiago Leon 32:14
No, no, it’s true because I believe the highest paid for CFL is like $150,000. So
Justin Riley 32:23
do you feel like a league like the Alliance or even the xfl is something that could eventually work and could really benefit players?
Jalston Fowler 32:35
Yeah. I mean, you just got to be dedicated to it and did you take a lot of time though, it ain’t gonna be easy. Now you got to put it you got to put in more time more effort. You’re gonna have to spend more time working your butt off
Santiago Leon 32:52
for Johnston now that you’re here recently got into coaching How did you get into coaching and things like that?
Jalston Fowler 33:00
man it was it’s funny man like one day I was just playing around on Facebook is like man I want to start coaching. So soon I said that one of my coaches from rival high school with high school guy we call buckethead. Call Call Jackson. How would you like me I want to start coaching man, you know? You like ma’am all you really want to coach. So like Yeah, I do it cuz I said I was I wanted to do it. He was like, man, I will come on over here talk to the head coach and we won’t get it going.
Santiago Leon 33:35
And how has the talent been so far? Like, have you seen some potential future college football players or? Or like NFL players?
Jalston Fowler 33:45
Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah, we all got a guy night right now. I mean, john and JD. Both of those guys are pretty good. Oh, we got I got a young running back. Brandon He’s pretty good he’s just he’s just a short short guy but he’s got a chance to he got an offer from a state already so got a couple guys
Santiago Leon 34:12
but you have any type of like a direct line to Alabama Hey guys I had this one player in my team you should definitely seen
Jalston Fowler 34:20
now I try to I try not to bug those guy when it comes to that type of stuff I just let them do their job and I know they’ll find the right guy.
Justin Riley 34:30
We all know you as a player who exactly is coach Fowler What’s he like?
Jalston Fowler 34:36
Man clothes probably the coolest coolest laid back guys I mean all the kids like a lot of coaches like first and get on it but man, I just love talking to me.
Santiago Leon 34:52
What is your style coaching like is it very perfectionist? Is it a tactical Or is it just Hey guys it’s cuz go have fun.
Jalston Fowler 35:03
It’s more like Hey guy, let’s have fun but also let’s do our job at the same time. What’s your biggest
Justin Riley 35:10
takeaway that you got from Coach Saban that you incorporate in your style?
Jalston Fowler 35:19
game like how do I feel like a pro how to be a veteran in the NFL? How to Prepare yourself for a game?
Santiago Leon 35:28
Has the game changed a lot since you left high school?
Jalston Fowler 35:32
It hasn’t changed a bit man just more spread. In high school we pretty much did it all out form basis spread wing t we pretty much did it all like when I say all we did it all.
Justin Riley 35:48
What’s the most important thing or more than one thing do you think a lot of these up and coming athletes really need to know about the game of football beyond high school in college.
Jalston Fowler 36:00
My biggest thing when I tell anybody I just tell them with respect is due to adult man. respect everybody and you’ll go a long way
Santiago Leon 36:09
How do you see Alabama now obviously Alabama did not make the playoffs. What do you think they need to do to make it back into the top four?
Jalston Fowler 36:17
Meaning just go back to work put your head down go back to work Nicole save this to the coaching staff. I mean, they got the recipe man. We’ve been doing it for a long time. And pretty much been the same recipe and the thing just got to get back to it.
Santiago Leon 36:33
Would you like last season which was Who was your favorite player that you saw last season from Alabama? I love all nnaji
Jalston Fowler 36:39
i but i was i was on the receivers last year those those big name guys man. I love those guys. Yeah, D Smith, Jerry Judy. waddle. You have a lot of guys man. Just bawling man. I loved every moment of it.
Santiago Leon 37:03
Justin Riley 37:04
how do you think that we get back to playing the Bama style of defense because last year we didn’t play how you know we’re accustomed to how we get back to playing that style.
Jalston Fowler 37:16
I mean, I think he had a lot to do with those two guys in the middle getting hurt if I feel like they wouldn’t got hurt I mean, we would have had a lot of a better chance of repeating again back to the playoffs
Santiago Leon 37:30
Yeah, there’s something here at the sports guys we talked about a lot is the defense that the starters early on and and there was a young defense right, Justin. So yeah, probably by this season this upcoming season they got their other ducks in an order.
Jalston Fowler 37:49
Oh, yeah, I think everything everything is in order this year. We should be a lot better than me. You got to receiver returning. Our written note office ally, they always bring it
Santiago Leon 38:00
Whatever you heard about this season I’ve heard anything about the schedule changes we will be short no fans What have you heard on your end?
Jalston Fowler 38:08
I haven’t heard anything and like I said, I don’t try to bother those guys. I just let it happen. Older people so it’s gonna be hard.
Santiago Leon 38:23
They’ll break Justin’s hard cuz he wants a full season with everyone there we went with the full stadium.
Justin Riley 38:29
Everybody’s safe I definitely want a football season. Justin some of the other players we’ve spoken with here in the past or our coaches aren’t now and they’re not really sure exactly what the season is going to look like for them. What are you hearing as far as high school ball and teams near area? what its gonna look like you guys say we
Jalston Fowler 38:50
really did farming protocol and we we got all we had to talk to the head, athletic guy. We just got to go from what the head coach said.
Santiago Leon 39:01
So you don’t know if you have a full season this season for you guys.
Jalston Fowler 39:05
I don’t know. We did go ahead to see where those
Santiago Leon 39:08
love the high schools have been canceled throughout the season or maybe have a December like a short season. I know Justin was talking about Mississippi High School wrestling season right. We’ll sit down and Mississippi high schools have they canceled like their football season
Justin Riley 39:25
yet? No, everything is on schedule as as normal. That thing has
Jalston Fowler 39:34
pushed, okay, they they push that start date. They’re gonna start in September. That’s all things really change as far as who I mean they
Justin Riley 39:47
have been really brought to the table yet.
Santiago Leon 39:56
Baby girl crying. It’s okay man. Well, we’ll work through it. Nelson can Mike rabl take this Titans team to a Super Bowl?
Jalston Fowler 40:04
Yeah, I think he’s a great coach. man. He’s a player coach because he actually played the game and you can learn a lot from him. And just the same what I seen the last the last two years. I mean, he got playing great.
Santiago Leon 40:19
And do you think Tom Brady can take the Buccaneers to the
Jalston Fowler 40:22
Super Bowl? A TV man that’s the goal. I believe
Santiago Leon 40:27
I told Justin that but he doesn’t believe me
Jalston Fowler 40:31
though that my lap
Santiago Leon 40:34
will just let me know if one more before rapid fire or you want to get right into one more.
Justin Riley 40:40
Speaking of how this company here who’ve from the Alabama camp Do you feel is going to be an immediate impact this year in the rookie
Jalston Fowler 40:51
class? Um, I think that quarterback Bryce young is gonna be pretty good man. I think he’s gonna be a great a great player for us. Reverse Alabama whenever this time comes.
Santiago Leon 41:02
You think I’ll start over Mack Jones? Or do you think Mack Jones is a set starter this season?
Jalston Fowler 41:06
I think Matt Jones start, but I think Bryce did end up coming in fill in their one game and from now you’re just gonna skyrocket.
Santiago Leon 41:15
I told Justin that all the time, but he’s still believing.
Justin Riley 41:18
No, I agree. Be a great player. I think right now like Justin said it’s max team. Right?
Santiago Leon 41:28
Anyways, it’s going to rapid fire short 32nd question and answer. Justin, you go first.
Justin Riley 41:36
But am I actually want me to ask you about this, Justin. There was a rumor that after sustaining an injury in Alabama, your arms got a huge walk around campus on crutches. Word is I couldn’t fit in your sleeve. Well, that rumor was out there and I I was asked to do to ask you about that.
Jalston Fowler 42:03
I did. I didn’t know that. I didn’t know that. Yes, sir.
Santiago Leon 42:06
Johnson who is your favorite wrestler?
Jalston Fowler 42:09
My favorite rap was Stone Cold Steve. Of course.
Justin Riley 42:14
Speaking of that, would you consider joining the WWE and if so, what would you uh
Jalston Fowler 42:20
yeah, I’ll be interesting because my kids love it my two boys they love all they doing I don’t know man. Maybe I’d be like a brush Roman or somebody. Smile.
Santiago Leon 42:33
Johnston what is the heaviest you you have ever lifted, lifted on a bench press. Jalston. Justin he’s gone.
Chelsea Johnson’s gone. The babies welcome
Justin Riley 42:57
Hey man. It happens sometimes that those kids man, they’ll take you
Santiago Leon 43:05
Wow, what a what an interview Justin, what an interview. very personal person very young. very responsible, I think I think we found out something that Wikipedia can tell what happened after he got cut by the Titans.
Justin Riley 43:23
It’s a really great talking with players like him and the players we’ve spoken to. Over the course of several weeks now. We’ve been able to see the inside of everything and things that don’t get reported and, you know, things that maybe some of these young athletes really need to pay more attention to. So we will have
Santiago Leon 43:46
had a look at Johnson back. Johnson we got a couple more questions to ask you before you leave. God. where’s the best place to get fried chicken
Jalston Fowler 43:58
hearts come on down here. Wherever I cheated. Oh, I say down here first cohorts.
Santiago Leon 44:05
How about Tuscaloosa? Oh,
Jalston Fowler 44:10
I’ve got the Wayne john up there. He’s a really good chicken.
Santiago Leon 44:13
Just the nose.
Jalston Fowler 44:16
Archibald. Yeah. Yeah, Archibald. Pretty good man. He has some of the best things you could possibly get. Wow.
Justin Riley 44:26
Oh, yeah. See, I spend time between Archie balls and in dreamland. So, but either way I was getting fed pretty good. Oh, yeah.
Jalston Fowler 44:37
Oh, yeah. I love Raymond young man. That’s spot.
Santiago Leon 44:40
What’s your favorite? What’s your favorite? Your favorite place to eat there?
Jalston Fowler 44:44
Man. Whatever was back there. I was. I mean a porn so I love baking so I used to get like an omelet filled with bacon and ham and sausage and go crazy with the homeless for two days baby. Speaking of that, the bacon man is here. Take on the national champion BLT. Oh, no.
Justin Riley 45:06
Man, that’s just mounds and mounds of bacon man, a lot of you that well, when I saw that I was like, man, I got considered tax on that. So I had to issue a challenge
Santiago Leon 45:16
when I was somewhere, Joseph. So how much he bench?
Jalston Fowler 45:21
My max? I know he’s 500 pounds.
Santiago Leon 45:24
Wow, that’s one of the Justin I think. What is
Justin Riley 45:29
my all time high was 425. So yeah,
I definitely see my total there.
Santiago Leon 45:36
Also Jolson, what do you recommend Justin to do with the bad back?
Jalston Fowler 45:41
I just say all right, let’s get as many massages as you can. To get a hot hot bath. scratch it out. Like take your hot bath, scratch it out. Then I put some ice on after you finish finishing up.
Justin Riley 45:55
I appreciate that. Hey, did you ever get approached by the xfl And would that look like they did?
Jalston Fowler 46:03
I mean, I probably would have but I told my agent and I was done with football so it probably
Santiago Leon 46:21
Johnston losing in outer space. I love these impromptu calls Justin.
Justin Riley 46:32
Yeah, it’s always always a good time to get
Santiago Leon 46:37
great answer right now.
Oh Justin, you might have to restart the call because I think you might be out of range. Unless me and Justin we’ll we’ll finish off and talk about solutions iteration back
Justin Riley 47:03
I think what he said biggest thing is for me just to rested I said stick in the hot shower or something like that
Santiago Leon 47:11
massage therapy man Have you tried? What’s like the biggest massage therapy play a place in Mississippi
Justin Riley 47:19
never been to massage therapy therapy place I can tell you they’re
Santiago Leon 47:24
taking out your insurance my cover it. That is true. I might have
Justin Riley 47:28
to look at that. But yeah, I’m ready to get through this injury man. It’s rough already. Get back to the grind again.
Santiago Leon 47:32
Jonathan, you’re there. We lost Johnson to the xfl man. That’s what happened.
Justin Riley 47:38
Vince McMahon can’t You can’t turn your back.
Santiago Leon 47:42
I mean, how much? How much would an average player get paid there now?
Justin Riley 47:48
I forgot what the totals were but the only players who were really getting paid well. Turned out to be the quarterbacks the other players really wouldn’t have had As well as you would have thought, but it was an opportunity for him.
Santiago Leon 48:05
I think Johnston’s coming back and he’s the he’s not quit on us. He’s still in negotiations with the xfl. But he’s, but he’s here with the sports case. He wants a spot here with us. So hopefully, yeah. But yeah, but but with the pandemic xfl. I think it’s become obsolete. But anyways, Justin, you’re back. Justin, can you hear us? He can’t use his mic. But has the xfl been like deceased now? Or do you think after this whole pandemic over there, they’ll probably come back. You know, it’s really up in the air right
Justin Riley 48:41
now. We didn’t really get a definitive answer as to what is going on. I think ownership may have changed hands or something changed hands. It was kind of important. I think it’s been kind of like tucked away in the closet, per se and I think that I think the NFL would have ultimately been successful. But because of the pandemic, it really really did not allow it to mature to what the complete picture would have been.
Santiago Leon 49:14
Yeah, and now with a pandemic, it’s just you know, there’s a lot of pre pay on the stadiums on ran on the staff. So one little thing could just you know, just go berserk and it just becomes the seats but but but we’ll see visit man has a lot of money still so he I think he can able to restart it, maybe not next year, but maybe a couple years from now. Anyways, Johnston just left this guy’s fortunately, you know, he had issues with this communication line, but hopefully we can. Well, he might be coming back again. So hopefully, Third time’s the charge. Huddleston, Dalston. Yeah, charm. I think we mentioned XML, it can be a bad luck thing.
Justin Riley 50:06
Because as soon as we said that you’re gone
Santiago Leon 50:08
it’s gone. It’s gone too.
Jalston Fowler 50:11
Yeah, I was just told my agent that I was finished. That’s probably why I didn’t get a call from those guys.
Santiago Leon 50:18
You only been out for two for like almost two years. There can be a possibility that you could come back to the NFL right? No, no, no, no, I’m too fat.
Jalston Fowler 50:27
Justin Riley 50:30
you don’t look like that in your pictures man. Wait.
Jalston Fowler 50:35
No, I don’t but hey, I’m hearing man. I’m like three a 315 right now. The
Santiago Leon 50:43
how fast? Like, like what was your fastest running time back in college or football or in like the NFL.

So she grabbed the baby out my arm and I’m like, What is he doing? Like she put the baby in the bouncer and next day, you know? I just feel water coming on my head. I’m like, man, oh, she is dying. Laughing she put me on Snapchat.

Like she said she Round three o’clock so I took it upon myself to fill up a bucket or a bowl full of water and put some ice cubes in a dump.
Santiago Leon 52:09

Jalston Fowler 52:14

Jalston Fowler 54:46

Santiago Leon 54:58
Well, we hope You do make it into the college level. It’s pretty exciting. And hopefully, maybe maybe like up there with Alabama.
