College Footballs Champs Share An Emotional and Powerful Moment With Trump

Alabama’s national championship football team visited the White House on Tuesday. The Crimson Tide came from behind with a 13-0 deficit to beat their rivals Georgia 26-23. It was Coach Nick Saban’s 5th national championship at the famed school, and his sixth overall. 

Alabama’s starting quarterback Jalen Hurts shared his emotional response to being at the White House.

“Y’all put your mind to anything in life and y’all can achieve it. Man, at the White House – that’s so crazy.”

Although Hurts was a huge factor in Alabama’s winning season, Coach Saban surprised many by putting in freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailoa for the second half and the win.

The president praised the team and the winning ways of Alabama football saying, “Each of you here today is here because of your grit your drive your dedication and your incredible teamwork,” Pres. Trump said. “Over the last several decades, America has learned that Alabama football knows how to win and how to keep winning…they just keep winning. It also takes a great coach and a great athletic director.”

President Trump concluded his congratulatory remarks with a celebratory “Roll Tide!”

Just after the president made his remarks, a group of players approached him and then began to pray for the president on the south lawn. One player placed his hand on Trump’s shoulder as the young men huddled around him in prayer.
