AJ McCarron is a class act. McCarron saw a student named AJ Starr standing outside of the practice field fences one day after practice and watched as two buses left without waiting for Starr to board them for a ride home. McCarron offered him a ride home instead of leaving him to walk in the rain that had begun to fall. During that ride the two bonded as McCarron learned of Starr’s Cerebral Palsy.
“He got out of the car and I just started ballin crying, I mean I couldn’t handle it anymore,” McCarron said after the ride.
McCarron was able to get Starr a job working in the Alabama equipment room where he’s become one of the guys.
“I’m so thankful for AJ and all this organization has done for me,” says Starr. “Every time I come in, no matter how bad my day is, or what I may go through with my challenges, when I come here it goes out the window, you know. I’m probably the happiest man on this planet.”
