Unlike the 2017 NBA champion Golden State Warriors and the NFL stars, Alabama made the trip to Washington to visit President Donald Trump.
The university announced Monday the 2017 college football national champions will visit the White House at 2 p.m. on Tuesday.
Alabama 2017 national championship football players circle around President Trump and pray for him after the ceremony – White House Rose garden.
But what was supposed to be a standard team visit soon became a ministry opportunity for the young players from the University of Alabama men’s football team.
Shortly after President Trump delivered his remarks, a group of players approached him and, after exchanging a few words, began to pray. The huddle showed the president bowing his head while a player placed his hand on Trump’s shoulder as he prayed for him.
“Each of you here today is here because of your grit your drive your dedication and your incredible teamwork,” Pres. Trump said. “Over the last several decades, America has learned that Alabama football knows how to win and how to keep winning…they just keep winning. It also takes a great coach and a great athletic director.”
President Trump concluded his congratulatory remarks with a celebratory “Roll Tide!
According to Alabama sports reporter Christina Chambers, it was punter JK Scott who suggested the moment of prayer, and Trump was quick to oblige.
Just moments before, Trump congratulated the Crimson Tide on their victory, saying, “Each of you here today is here because of your grit, your drive, your dedication, and your incredible teamwork.”
This is the right thing to do respect your President and respect your religion!
