Photo report: A-Day a success

A-Day activities included fan gatherings on the Quad, an autograph party with the 1992 championship team, the Walk-of-Fame ceremony--and of course the game itself. Won by Crimson over White, 20-6.

Fans talk on the Quad early on A-Day morning at the Bama Magazine gathering. Scores of Internet users dropped by, talking about their favorite team and putting usernames with faces.

As part of the tenth anniversary of the 1992 National Championship team, returning players signed pictures and posters for fans. But as the picture clearly shows, the line stretched almost all the way across the Quad--much too long for everyone to be accomodated.

Prior to the beginning of the game, last year's team captains placed their hand and footprints in cement to be enshrined permanently at the foot of Denny Chimes. Here, Saleem Rasheed leaves his handprint.

Leading tackler in the game redshirt freshman rover Mark Anderson, goes through pre-game warmups. Anderson also shared the Ozzie Newsome Most Improved Freshman award with Roman Harper.

With the game's outcome decided, White's Gerald Dixon (far left) watches the action with Hirchel Bolden and Kindal Moorehead, both of whom sat out the contest recovering from injury.

Having won the Dixie Howell Memorial Award for the game's most outstanding player, Ahmaad Galloway looks up into the stands before going into the lockerroom. Galloway had 151 all-purpose yards to lead the Crimson squad to victory.

The game's two Head Coaches, Les Koenning (Crimson) and Carl Torbush (White), take a quick break as Coach Franchione talks to the media.
