One of the parents posted this on the UA Parent Group on Facebook, thought I'd share it here:
Patience please. I had a son graduate 2 years ago from UA. His younger brother is now a freshman at UA. Weird thing is that we lived in Michigan and had zero affiliation with UA before my 1st son came here. My wife and I both retired from our jobs in Michigan and moved to Tuscaloosa for at least this year, and maybe longer. Bought season tickets to football games and couldn't be happier here.
However, today I picked up a young man (I'm an Uber driver now to keep busy) whose name was Elisha Shaw. What a class act this kid was to talk to along with with his maturity. If I was an employer, this kid would on the top of my list to hire. In high school, he was the number 1 recruit coming out of Georgia, and the number 2 DT in the nation. Before his senior year in HS, he suffered a career ending neck injury, but Nick Saban honored his scholarship anyway. Elisha couldn't have been any more thankful to Coach Saban for that, plus Saban's guidance and encouragement upon arriving. We all know what a great "coach" we have, but this just reinforces the kind of "person" he is as well. Love Tuscaloosa and UA. Roll Tide!!
