Alabama DL Jonathan Allen Writes Heartfelt Goodbye Essay
John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports
Alabama defensive lineman and team captain Jonathan Allen wrote this “Goodbye, Alabama,” essay, which is in full here, as a tribute to the Crimson Tide. Here's a small piece of it...

I’m leaving Alabama with my head held high.

I’m leaving with three straight SEC titles, three straight NCAA playoff appearances, two straight national championship game appearances and one national title.

But I’m also leaving with so much more. I’m leaving with dozens of brothers — guys who are going to be my brothers for life. I’m leaving with a degree in financial planning that will empower me to take control of my future. And most of all, I’m leaving with no fears or doubts about what I’m capable of as I move on to this next chapter.

Allen will be a top five pick in this year’s NFL Draft.

Man every young person needs to read things like that. Very inspirational when talking about the Clemson game. One game certainly didn't define Jonathan Allen

I'd be sad too. He'll leave Bama and be a top 5 pick and take a pay cut
