I had the pleasure of meeting Robert Stewart and chatting with him for about 15 minutes at a trade sale years ago. I had Alabama cards and I hooked him up with a stack of his cards and he signed a couple for me. Super nice guy...but mercy he was HUGE! Glad he was nice HUGE!

Can’t believe Alabama traveled to SW Louisiana. Always thought that was bizarre.

Bama used to play SW LA every year. I think one year they threw them a bone as a kind of thank you to give their program a bit of a boost. Definitely a different time for Bama football. They woul never do that now

Drafted by the Saints. Pretty sure I got his autograph at one of the Saints fan events.
