WATCH: Kool-Aid McKinstry earns first career interception, sets up TD

·1 min read

A fan favorite among Crimson Tide fans is true freshman cornerback Ga’Quincy ‘Kool-Aid’ McKinstry. In the first quarter of the home-opening matchup against Mercer, Kool-Aid earned his first interception in a crimson uniform.

The interception required speed and athleticism, as Kool-Aid had to jump the route, sprint up five yards and get to the ball before it could get to its intended target.

Kool-Aid’s pick set up some great field position for Bryce Young and the Alabama offense. They then went out and punched in a touchdown to give the Crimson Tide a 14-0 lead.
