What do you do when you can’t find anyone to throw to on the field?
Enlist help from a teammate in the crowd.
Check out the clip below from The Decatur Daily’s Alex Byington of Alabama wide receiver Gehrig Dieter playing catch with Crimson Tide walk-on quarterback Josh Palet on Saturday at Tiger Stadium. Palet is standing behind a fence near an end zone, close to other fans in the crowd.
Who says games of catch must be contained to the field?

Sometimes, it takes a full team effort to prepare, and that’s what we see here. A victory for Alabama over LSU would serve as a major step forward in its attempt to claim another SEC West title and assert its reputation as the nation’s top team.
It doesn’t hurt to pull out all the stops when preparing.
