Willie was at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway for a NASCAR event on Sunday. Several current Crimson Tide football players, including Jalen Milroe and Malachi Moore, attended the event. Alvin Kamara, a former Alabama running back, got his moment to say “Don’t give a piss about nothing but the Tide. Blitz, Bama, Blitz!” Kamara got a photo with Willie and enjoyed a time of laughter as well.

He came in the University of Alabama’s 2013 recruiting class with Derrick Henry.

Kamara’s career took off at the University of Tennessee after he left Alabama and went to Hutchinson Community College in 2014. He has been a superstar in the National Football League for the New Orleans Saints since getting selected in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. It was really cool for Kamara to have a fun moment with a Tide fan and social media phenomenon.
