In a year unlike any other (thanks to Covid-19), many high school football players are having to put in extra work in hopes of gaining notoriety from any colleges. The state of Alabama always produces great talent, and the class of 2022 appears no different than prior years.
Ja’Kobi Albert – from Fairfield, Alabama – entered 2022 with a driven mindset to separate himself from his competition, not only on the field but also as a person. Albert plays with a fiery intensity on the field, understands his assignments and is always willing to go above and beyond for his team. Tide Talk Sports was able to catch up with the gifted athlete from Farefield Preparatory School, and he along with his mother were kind enough to answer a few questions.
When asked about what makes any particular school stand out, Albert replied that he is looking for a program with “consistency within the coaching staff, the culture of the program and feeling like he matters.” He went on to add that “playing time, graduating with a degree and willingness to play both sides of the ball” were also important factors in his decision making.
Ja’Kobi has a very supportive inner circle that is driven by his parents, his motivation and his trust in God. He is very mature and is a team-oriented player. Ja’Kobi reiterated several times that he is willing to play anywhere the head coach needs him to. Currently, he noted that his main goal for the season are winning a state championship for Fairfield Prep. As for recruiting, he stated, “Recruiting is a ride and when it stops, I’ll get off.”
