Fans of all ages traveled from across the country to attend.“I’m very excited,” said UA student Tajma Henderson. “This is my first a-day, and hopefully we can see the rookies win today. Old ones have more experience, so maybe we can see the new ones win something today.”Henderson is a sophomore from Chicago, Illinois. She said football here is very different from football back home.“I haven’t really been much of a football fan, and so just to see these big crowds or something, that’s shocking to me,” She said. “I didn’t know that it was such a big sport for everybody here. It’s just good to be a part of that culture.”Tuscaloosa native Kathy Sharp brings her grandson to football games every chance she gets. Sharp attended UA in the 1970s and has been to every A-Day for the last 10 years. She said one thing keeps her coming back every year.“Love for Bama,” she said. “Roll tide.”last_img
