BY Brett Smiley • February 4, 2016

While the rest of the 2015 National Champion Alabama Crimson Tide football team will get to meet President Barack Obama at the White House in the spring, star running back and Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry got a head start.

“Hey real talk, we’re going to meet Obama,” Alabama safety Hootie Jones said after the Crimson Tide defeated Clemson 45-40 on Jan. 11. “To the White House, you heard me.”

Henry attended the annual National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday when Obama made an address as well as keynote speakers, producer Mark Burnett and actress Roma Downey.
