Jalen Hurts reflected on Alabama's national championship from White House visit

Nick Saban is one of the best recruiters in college football, but it's easy when you have the resources and tradition at the University of Alabama.

"Tua dropped back to pass, launched the ball from near midfield - I was watching - and the entire country watched as arms lifted up and DeVonta Smith caught that ball for the win", Mr. Trump said, declaring how proud he was of the way the team played and represented their state. We're going, just to celebrate this team, ' " Alabama senior offensive lineman Ross Pierschbacher explained Monday.

"You know, not many people get invited to the White House, so not many people get invited to see the President and meet the President", said Saban.

Members of recent champions like the Golden State Warriors and the Philadelphia Eagles chose to skip out on the visit because of the actions of the current president, Donald Trump.

Alabama is not following in the footsteps of those professional teams.

Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts shared an inspirational video from the White House where he still sounded surprised that he was actually there.

Trump had attended the game in Atlanta in January, appearing on the field for the playing of the national anthem and the presentation of the American flag.

"As a team we made a decision to go", running back Damien Harris said.

It will Alabama's fifth visit since 2009.

Rising junior outside linebacker Terrell Lewis, who grew up about 30 minutes from the White House but has never been, said he'll have to attend a funeral today. "It is definitely an honor and we have to think of it as we're not going for whatever the political problems are or the President". The coach also said he called some recruits from the White House, which is truly a power move.

Pierschbacher said he enjoyed his first trip to the White House.

Still, despite Trump's politics, players are excited about the visit whether they agree with him. "We're going for the honor of being at the White House"'.

"In the national championship game, you stuck to 'The Process, ' even when it was looking pretty tough", the president said. "This group of young men will also learn a lot of lessons that will help them be more successful in life because of the experiences they had together this year as a team".
