Forest Park, GA is is known for an outstanding Farmer's Market. It's located less than an hour from Athens, home to the back-back-back champs. Alabama senior defensive end Justin Eboigbe chose to get farther away from home.

“They (Georgia) recruited me very hard,” the 2019 signee and redshirt senior said. “One of the biggest things, they don’t like seeing talent leave the state, but for me, I wanted to go somewhere a little bit further from home but close enough. I wanted to come to Alabama to go against the best each and every day and push myself to become the best player I can be.

"I would say every game means a little bit more," Eboigbe said this week. "It’s special because you’re going back home, playing in Atlanta, going against the best team in college ball right now to many. It means a little bit more because a lot of those guys recruited me and recruited a lot of guys on our team. So I’m pretty sure it means a lot to us.

"Extremely grateful feeling. Being able to go back home to play a great team to be able to win the SEC and be able to do something that hasn’t been done, they have a lot of things going on their side for their team as UGA, and we have a lot of things going for our side that we look forward to going against them. It’s going to be a great game. Two Goliaths going at it, and we’re going to see who comes out on top."

Tide 110.9 and WTBC 1230 AM will have full coverage from Atlanta Friday and Saturday of the SEC title game. Stay tuned!
