    Schlabach: The quarterback and his girl (McCarron & Starla Chapman)

    Truly sad, I'm sure he'll be thinking of her during this game.

    Yet another reason I'm proud to be a Crimson Tide fan. May God continue to bless this little girl and her family......and ROLL TIDE!

    Stories like this make me so proud of our boys. I liked the Team Starla page on Facebook, and every time I see an update, I can't help but smile.

    On the night Starla was diagnosed with leukemia in September 2011, and the day before she would begin grueling chemotherapy treatments, the little girl told her noticeably concerned parents, "Just trust."
    Miraculously, doctors told Starla's parents she was in full remission on April 11, 2012. Starla's heart eventually returned to normal, too, after she no longer needed the toxins to kill cancer cells. Another checkup on Thursday revealed that she's still cancer-free.
    What an amazing and inspirational story. This little girl faced the ravages of cancer, the challenges of therapy, and the spectre of death with such a positive attitude. When I read something like this, I understand how insignificant most of my "problems" really are and how foolish it is to fret over them.

    God bless Starla and I hope that she continues to improve.

    Tears in my eyes as well. This transcends the game by far.

    Seems like a lot of our players have done things like this in recent years. It's great to see our players getting press for humility and generosity rather than arrogance and bad behavior. Helps to avoid becoming Goliath to other teams' David.
    Discipline.
    Commitment.

    Toughness.
    Pride.

    Re: Schlabach: The quarterback and his girl (McCarron & Starla Chapman)

    A few years ago we organized a ride to Children's Hospital in Birmingham. We took toys and various supplies but the main thing we took were do-rags adorned with the Superman logo. Those kids who had lost their hair absolutely loved do-rags and it was our great fortune to be able to supply them with about 500 of them. I can tell you from experience that it means an awful lot to AJ and I expect he feels that he has received a lot more than he has given.
