As the RGMTC, he is responsible for hiring and training managers for 15 New York KFC stores. During his free time, Anthony Courcy follows college football is a fan of Alabama Crimson Tide.

The Alabama Crimson Tide is home to several significant talents. For example, there is wide receiver Calvin Ridley who was a breakout freshman last year, leading the Southeastern Conference (SEC) with 89 catches. There is also senior player O.J. Howard who is remembered for his 208 yards and two touchdowns in last year’s national championship game.

This year, however, a new Alabama player is leading the SEC in terms of receiving yards and touchdowns, and it is neither of the abovementioned players. It is redshirt junior ArDarius Stewart who pulled impressive numbers in his first two games: nine catches for 203 yards and three touchdowns. The Fultondale, Alabama-native has been praised by the team’s coach Nick Saban who described Stewart as an explosive player and a really good competitor.

Despite being only 6’1″ and weighing in at 204 pounds, Stewart’s play has been described as very physical with the ability to block every down and make great plays even after a catch. Teammate Howard even describes him as one of the nation’s best blocking receivers.
