Julio Jones was a freshman at Alabama in 2008. He’s had a lot of incredible moments since that time, but it was a first with the Crimson Tide that has left a lasting memory in the Georgia Dome.
He caught 58 passes for 924 yards with four touchdowns that season, but it was his first time playing in the dome, set to come down soon, against Clemson which stuck out to him.
