Last night was the college football National Championship game, and prior to learning this little nugget, I didn’t have that much rooting interest between the two teams. But I found out that the starting quarterback for Alabama is 19-year-old Jalen Hurts from Channelview, TX. So naturally, I had to root for him.
The good news, his team won the National Championship, that bad news is he had a really rough game and was benched at halftime for freshman QB Tua Tagovailoa. But after the game when a reporter went to him for an interview he could not have been more classy and supportive of his teammate who led them all the way back to win the game. Big ups to you Mr. Hurts.
