Thank you, Jalen Hurts.
You played hard. You left it all out all on the field. And in our hearts. You are everything that’s right about sports. About young people. About humanity. Strong. Confident. Explosive. Faithful. Humble. Selfless. Loyal. Resilient. Team first. A role model.
Read Jalen’s farewell statement: ’To My Alabama Family’ by Jalen Hurts, ThePlayersTribune.com
You’re 20 years old, and you are a winner. A Crimson Tide legend.
You left your mark on Alabama and on the SEC. Now you’re headed to the Big 12 for your final season of college football. And that’s OK.
Hope to see you on stage with Tua at the next Heisman Trophy ceremony, and on the field in the next College Football Playoff. But that’s all wishy-wish fantasy football fan lagniappe. You’re a winner, dude. Go out there and be yourself.
You have at least one adopted state of rabid football fans rooting for you.
