A brotherhood was the reason why he chose the University of Alabama.

Even at his lowest point, Trey Sanders has been able to depend on his teammates to lift his spirit.

For someone who has suffered two setbacks, the former five-star knows he is a talented individual.

A native of Port Saint Joe, Fla., Sanders was involved in a car accident on last week. He was taken to a hospital for treatment and though none of his injuries were life-threatening, Nick Saban said the Alabama running back will be ‘out indefinitely’ and may miss the rest of the season.

Prior to the incident, Sanders turned in a good performance versus Mississippi State.

He recorded 12 carries for 80 yards, including a pair of 20-plus yard runs. The 6-foot, 214-pounder had put the foot injury from 2019 behind him and was prepared to show Crimson Tide fans what he could do. After the accident, Sanders posted a video to Instagram with the caption: “Life of a Solider so I understand the consequences.”

Sanders is now back with the Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa.

Jaylen Waddle, a junior at wide receiver, shared a video that was captured by WVTM Channel 13 News of Sanders rolling into the locker room in a wheelchair. The team showered him in cheers as Waddle wanted him to do the “Slide” dance.

Waddle suffered a season-ending ankle injury against Tennessee, so he knows how Sanders feels.

To see the junior and others cheer up the redshirt freshman is awesome.

Hopefully, Sanders makes a full recovery and we can see him dominate on the field.
