University of Alabama football player and Dadeville alumnus Anfernee Jennings had a special message for children at the Back to School Jamboree and Fun Day on Saturday.
Kids at Adullam House in Wetumpka were treated to a special visit Wednesday when former Alabama football star O.J. Howard came to campus to hang out for the morning. Howard, who now plays for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFL, grew up in Prattville and returned home for some time during th…

Another recruiting season, another No. 1 class for Nick Saban. Of course, it also means another article regarding my superlatives for said Alabama signing class.
Alabama men’s basketball coach Avery Johnson has done a pretty good job in his four years in Tuscaloosa. He promotes the program well, his record against top-25 teams is more than adequate, the scheduling has been pretty difficult and recruiting has been above average for sure.
When Jalen Hurts entered the 2018 SEC Championship and brought Alabama back from the ashes against Georgia, you’d have thought Christ himself had walked out on the field in Atlanta.
If somebody told me Clemson would beat Alabama by 28 points Monday night, I probably would have offered a wager and lost every possession. I even suggested to a co-worker Monday morning Clemson hadn’t played anyone all season other than overrated Notre Dame and rising Syracuse. How in the wo…
Another year, another Monday night of travel for yours truly to watch Alabama in a national championship game (thus, with a Tuesday column, prohibiting my ability to write about said game). As I am writing this, I have no idea who won the game, who was the MVP or even how bad my hangover is …
The Alabama Crimson Tide suffered their worst loss under coach Nick Saban, and it came at the worst possible time. After leading Clemson early in the second quarter, the Tide were stymied by the Tigers’ defense and overwhelmed by their offense. It resulted in a lopsided victory in favor of C…

You know… Maybe Alabama and Georgia ought to play more often. Outside of a thorough 2015 thrashing in Athens, these two teams have played arguably the best three games Atlanta has seen in any sport since 2012.
Down by 14 points at different points in the second and third quarter, the No. 1 Alabama football team stormed back to a 35-28 win over No. 4 Georgia in the 2018 Southeastern Conference Championship on Saturday in Atlanta.
With time running out, Alabama had the Iron Bowl won. Leading 17-15, all the Tide had to do was run out the clock. Assigned to write the game story — and design the remaining Sunday sports pages for the Opelika-Auburn News — I bolted from Jordan-Hare Stadium on this crisp November night and …
The longstanding annual grudge match between Auburn and Alabama will be played Saturday at Bryant-Denny Stadium and it looks to be a classic David versus Goliath matchup.
A lot of national sports talk centered around the Southeastern Conference’s lax football schedule last weekend. Alabama hosted The Citadel, Auburn welcomed Liberty, Georgia took on Massachusetts, etc. Even pundits you think would be more SEC-centric (such as Greg McElroy) took potshots at th…
Playing against a top-five opponent Saturday night, Auburn jumped out to an early lead and looked to play the part of spoiler, but No. 5 Georgia proved to be too much as the Tigers dropped a 27-10 decision on the road.
Just a few years ago, Robert Howard was in Alexander City trying to figure out how to have a successful athletic career as a swimmer despite Benjamin Russell not having a team.
