Paul W. “Bear” Bryant was a legendary football coach for the University of Alabama.

One of his famous statements was ‘win with class and lose with class.’ Will Rogers, a quarterback for Mississippi State, embodied that statement after a loss to the Crimson Tide. He escorted an elderly Alabama event staffer out of Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Rogers completed 30 of 60 pass attempts for 231 yards. He played with a heavy heart last week as one of his teammates, Sam Westmoreland, died. Mississippi State scored only six points, but Rogers displayed compassion even in defeat.
