Two months removed from knee surgery, Landon Dickerson already pulling off incredible moves
Landon Dickerson is a freak of nature.
Alabama fans already knew this but there’s more evidence of that fact from Tuscaloosa today as Matt Rhea, the program’s director of sports science, shared an incredible video clip of the All-American lineman doing a split squat while standing on a few boxes.
Keep in mind, Dickerson is 6-foot-6, 325-pound.
Also worth mentioning, he had surgery on his knee following a season-ending injury suffered against Florida in the 2020 SEC Championship Game back on Dec. 19.
“Landon Dickerson had successful surgery,” Saban said following Dickerson’s injury and heading into the College Football Playoff showdown against Notre Dame. “He’ll obviously be out for this game. We’re excited about the fact that he is gonna be ok in the future. And he’s been a great leader on our team and will certainly be missed.”
I guess we shouldn’t be too surprised by this video considering Dickerson took the field for the final snaps of Alabama’s national championship victory over Ohio State back on Jan. 11, less than a month removed from his surgery. Following the final whistle, Dickerson picked up Saban and carried him off the field.
Either way, watch this and try to not be impressed by Dickerson’s recovery.
Seeing @Landon_2012 split squat today reminded me of videos like this that prove he is not normal. Not only is he extremely athletic, he attacks every day and every challenge like no one I’ve seen. pic.twitter.com/0DjnhR9ogj
