Texas A&M’s first Heisman Trophy winner dons khaki shorts and a white and maroon A&M shirt for a morning on the golf course. His clothes proclaim his loyalty to his university, but his love for Alabama is also obvious.
The two schools will clash on Saturday for the most anticipated college game of the season. But for John David Crow, the game will be special because of his ties to both teams. The first Aggie Heisman Trophy winner served as an assistant coach for Alabama under Paul “Bear” Bryant after his 11-year career in the NFL. His late son, Johnny, also played for Alabama under Coach Bryant.
