Photo: AJ McCarron shares touching moment with AJ Starr after Sugar Bowl

Good buddies AJ McCarron and AJ Starr shared a special moment in the Crimson Tide’s locker room following Alabama’s Sugar Bowl loss to Oklahoma. It’ll be the last time the two embrace as members of the football team.


The image captured even caught ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt’s attention.

If you aren’t familiar with the touching story, Starr suffers from cerebral palsy. He used to watch Alabama practices through the fence, just to get a glimpse of his favorite team. McCarron sparked up a friendship with Starr, eventually getting him a job on the team.
