Countdown to Kickoff
Crimson Tide Football Players Spend Time at TPS



TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Two members of the University of Alabama football team spent time Thursday morning with two kindergarten classes at Taylorville Primary School as the school celebrates "Red Ribbon Week".

Senior defensive back Ramzee Robinson (Huntsville) and sophomore defensive back Cory Reamer (Hoover) spent an hour with 40-plus children that make up Mrs. Siemers and Mrs. Aldridge's kindergarten classes at TPS.

The two Crimson Tide players talked about drug awareness, Crimson Tide football and signed autographs for the students.

"It is always nice to spend time with kids in school," Robinson said.  "These two classes were a lot of fun and they had some really good questions.  We even converted one little guy into an Alabama fan."

The Crimson Tide will host Florida International on Saturday, Oct. 28 for the school's 87th homecoming football game.  The kickoff this Saturday is set for 2:07 p.m. and the game will televised by The Crimson Tide Sports Network on a pay-per-view basis.
