Hello All BAMA Fans!

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas and holiday.  Please plan to start your New Year’s Eve celebration with us this Saturday, December 31 as BAMA goes for another national championship.  The first round game is against Washington and starts at 2:00 PM.  Alabama received numerous national awards this year.  Coach Saban won the SEC coach of the year.  Player awards included Reuben Foster the Butkus award for the top linebacker, Cam Robinson the Outland for best lineman, Jonathon Allen the Nagurski and Bednarik awards for best defensive player, and Jalen Hurts the SEC offensive and freshman player of the year.  These players and others were recognized as All SEC and All American players.
