A terminally ill Alabama fan got his last wish, with some help from Alabama’s football program and a 319-pound senior center.
The fan, identified only as “Tommy,” has been staying at a hospice in Albertville, Ala., located about 25 miles southeast of Huntsville. The town is known to Crimson Tide fans as the town that produced Hall of Fame guard John Hannah.
The fan received a package filled with Alabama memorabilia, including a football autographed by coach Nick Saban with the message “To Tommy, Roll Tide!”

He also received a phone call from Crimson Tide senior center Bradley Bozeman.
It was my pleasure!

The connection was set up with the aid of the Dream Foundation, a California-based organization that describes its mission as “making final dreams a reality for terminally ill adults and their families.”
