WASHINGTON, D.C. (WBRC) - President Barack Obama honored the Crimson Tide for the second year in a row Monday, saying at one point that he fully expected to see the team again during his second term.
Monday's ceremony felt much like an afternoon just a year ago and Obama made a few jokes to that point.
A handful of players, including A.J. McCarron and Barrett Jones presented the President with a "15" helmet and jersey as well as a signed football. Coach Saban joked that he would be in touch with Obama about his playing time.
"I think we should keep me on the bench," Obama responded.
