Jeremy Pruitt returned to the Alabama football program as defensive coordinator in 2016 and he is honoring two of the top players on his defensive unit from last season with his newborn son’s name.
This week, Pruitt announced the birth of his son who has been named Flynt Anderson-Foster Pruitt.
The hyphenated middle name comes from two standout Crimson Tide linebackers, Ryan Anderson and Reuben Foster. Last season, Foster was an All-American and Butkus Award winner, while Anderson was an All-SEC standout.
Here is the newest member of the Alabama football family:

Anderson also took to social media to express his gratitude to Pruitt for naming his song after him, while saying the little guy will always hold a special place in his heart.
Crimson Tide football is a way of life. And you have to believe Flynt Anderson-Foster Pruitt will be “Roll Tide” to the core.
