Kenyan Drake was a former football standout at Alabama. Dansby Swanson was the former No. 1 overall pick out of Vanderbilt. And the two seem to be pretty big fans of each other and the Atlanta Braves.
Drake, who grew up just outside of Atlanta in Powder Springs, Ga., was at SunTrust Park on Sunday before the Braves final game against the San Diego Padres. The former Alabama running back, and now a member of the Miami Dolphins, swapped jerseys with Swanson who is the starting shortstop for the Braves. Swanson also grew up just outside of Atlanta as he is from Marietta, Ga.
The two posed for a picture before the game with their swapped jerseys of their professional teams but sadly not from their college teams.

In Drake’s rookie season for the Dolphins, the running back rushed for 179 yards and scored two touchdowns. Swanson has gotten off to a slow start this season but he did drive in a run in Saturday’s win over the Padres. The Braves will look to go to 3-0 at SunTrust Park with the win.
