Watch: Jalen Hurts receives standing ovation at Alabama graduation

Jalen Hurts

Jalen Hurts received some excellent recognition during the University of Alabama’s commencement ceremony on Saturday.

Hurts incredibly graduated midway through his junior year. When he walked across the stage to receive his diploma, the Crimson Tide quarterback received loud cheers and a standing ovation from many in attendance.

Though Hurts deserves the recognition just for his academic accomplishment, his decision to remain at Alabama rather than transfer, and his redemption in the SEC Championship Game probably led to the loud cheers.

Hurts is a model for how to handle adversity by persevering, being a great teammate, and shining when you get your moment. He is a champion both on and off the field.
