Father’s Day gift brought former Alabama football player to tears


By WVUA 23 Sports Reporter Juliet Brown

It was a memorable first Father’s Day for former Alabama offensive lineman Bradley Bozeman. Bozeman and his wife Nikki welcomed their son, Brody, in January.

Nikki wanted to make her husband’s first Father’s Day special and thought there was no better gift than his late uncle’s old pickup truck. She stated on Twitter that Bozeman’s “wanted this truck for as long as I have known him (going on 10 years).” Nikki was offered the truck and gifted it to him the Friday before Father’s Day. His reaction was priceless.

Nikki said in the tweet that Bozeman wondered what his uncle listened to last and turned on the radio. Gospel music started playing which Bozeman took as sign from his uncle “saying I’m right here.”

Bozeman enters his sixth season in the NFL. He recently signed a three-year, $18 million deal with the Carolina Panthers. Bozeman will play a big role in keeping fellow Alabama star quarterback Bryce Young protected in the pocket next season. The Panthers kick off its season in Atlanta against the Falcons on Sept. 10.
