Here’s a blast from a proud past for Alabama fans.
It’s not a shock that former Crimson Tide players would come out in force for the national championship game between Alabama and Clemson. When there’s a big stage, huge names are bound to come out, and that’s what happened Monday at Raymond James Stadium.

Earlier in the night, former Alabama running back Derrick Henry, the 2015 Heisman Trophy winner, was a popular sight throughout Raymond James Stadium.

The former Alabama players had to enjoy what they saw early in the first half. The Crimson Tide jumped to a 14-0 lead early in the second quarter after two touchdown runs from running back Bo Scarbrough.
The faces change, but the dominance stays the same at Alabama.
