What does 'Bama's Arenas fear?

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama's Javier Arenas is finally getting as much recognition as a cornerback as he does for his punt return abilities.

The Crimson Tide senior is a preseason first-team All-Southeastern Conference pick by league media and a second-team return man behind Florida's Brandon James.

Defensive coordinator Kirby Smart said Arenas is driven by his competitive nature and hates even giving up a 5-yard pass.

Arenas is already Alabama's leader in punt return yards for a game, season and career and is also the NCAA's active leader. Six times he has returned punts for a touchdown, another Tide record.

He started every game at corner last season.
