Alabama’s Derrick Henry, Minkah Fitzpatrick earn SEC honors
Alabama running back Derrick Henry and cornerback Minkah Fitzpatrick were both honored by the SEC for their efforts in a 41-23 win over Texas A&M on Saturday.
Henry — the Offensive Player of the Week — turned in a 236-yard rushing performance against the Aggies, while Fitzpatrick — the Freshman of the Week — returned two interceptions for touchdowns (a new school record).
This is the third consecutive week that a Crimson Tide player has received an SEC honor. Fitzpatrick was also named the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week.
