Alabama Football Player Changes Lives

uaAnother great story about an Alabama football player.

Ali Sharrief came to Alabama as a running back but was too deep on the depth chart to see any playing time. He changed to defense, where he’s now a defensive back seeing time as a second-string safety.

Sharrief may be a football star one day, but he’s not one yet — except at Woodland Forrest Elementary School. You see, Sharrief volunteers to work with kids who are discipline problems — and he changes them.

Here’s the story. Here’s a video. I know I’m supposed to be on vacation, but this story is too good not to share.
