LOOK: Alabama dedicated its win over Ole Miss to a fan who recently died


The way Alabama operates, it may have been just another win. The Crimson Tide demolished Ole Miss and then swept them under the rug with a 66-3 victory.

It would have been easy to move on to the next one. Yet, Saturday’s win meant a lot more to the Crimson Tide.

They dedicated the victory to Cameron Pruitt, a 13-year-old Alabama native who had cancer. Cam passed away Friday, but he was on the minds of many Alabama players.

Saturday after the game, Jalen Hurts spoke about Cam and what he meant to the team after wearing “RIP Cam wristbands during the game.

“Cam, I met him last year, but in the last few two weeks, I’ve probably went to visit him four to five times,” Hurts said after Saturday’s victory over Ole Miss. “I built a relationship with him. I always give him my earrings, always give him the sweatband that I have and I wear just to show that I’m playing for him and he’s on my mind, for sure. He was a strong kid, and he taught me a lot.”
