MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Friday was an extra special day for Senior Bowl fans, who got to greet their favorite college football stars face-to-face at "Meet the Players."
At the Mobile Convention Center, it was a sea of crimson as red as the Tide's mascot itself. Hundreds- maybe thousands- braved long lines to meet some of Alabama's finest.
Linebacker Nico Johnson and Foley's own safety Robert Lester signed autographs to give back to the fans.
"Every year we want to give back to our community and our fans because they stick with us no matter where we go," Johnson said. "We can go to Alaska and they'll be there with us. I'm just thankful to have the fan base that we have because they've been so supportive throughout my four years."
Notre Dame center Braxton Cave is playing on the North roster. He'll get a chance to get some revenge on Bama players during Saturday's game, whether he wants to admit it or not.
"No, I'm over [the National Championship] right now," Cave said. "I'm just trying to focus on doing the right things to get myself in the position to go to the next level."
