WATCH: Deontay Wilder speaks to Alabama football team

Professional boxer and WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder spoke to the Alabama football team Tuesday. 

The team posted a video to the team Twitter account. 

“Y’all got each other,” Wilder said. “That’s a beautiful thing to have each other, because with each other, within numbers, you’re strong.” 

The heavyweight champion is one of three professional athletes to speak to Alabama before the 2018 season. Former NBA star Kobe Bryant spoke to the team Aug. 9, and former NFL star Eric Thomas spoke to the team Aug. 4.
