Former Bama football stars at the funeral of teammate Ahmaad Galloway

They didn’t want to hold a reunion there. How on earth did this group of Alabama football heroes gather in Millington, Tennessee? Life goes by fast when you’re playing football. One year, it’s 2000 – the crowd cheers and you smile. The next time you blink it’s 2023 – it’s silent and you’re crying. Alabama’s football heroes gathered Monday to say goodbye to another teammate who died prematurely. Ahmaad Galloway died 15 days ago and the heroes of Alabama made their way north to Galloway’s hometown. There they gathered before one spoke, then another. They told stories about the good old days. Stories that have faded from their memories over the years. There was Kenny Smith, Terry Jones Jr. and Hichell Bolden. There was Griff Redmill, Ray Marshall and Reggie Grimes. There was Kindal Moorehead, Tony Dixon and Gary Banes. There was AC Carter, Miguel Merrit and Dennis Alexander. There was Kecalf Bailey, Darrius Gilbert and Marvin Constant. The football heroes from Alabama shared stories about Galloway, a badass running back who left them at the age of 42. They prayed for Galloway’s children, Austin and Aubree, and then listened to 11-year-old Austin at the funeral as he recited a handwritten letter he wrote in honor of his father. They buried their friend. Alabama’s football heroes disperse today, returning to their families and their hometowns 20 years after they breathed the roar of the crowd. Leaving Millington will give them time to reflect on their good times with another former teammate who left too soon. You will reflect on the life and spirit of your good friend Ahmaad Galloway. A football hero from Alabama.
