Alabama Celebrates Referee Eddie Conyers’ 90th Birthday at Practice
As the seasons come and go in Tuscaloosa, there's been one constant for Alabama football for nearly six decades: referee Eddie Conyers.
The man has worked practices for the Crimson Tide football program since Bear Bryant was the head coach and he still patrols the sidelines today.
Monday's practice was a little different, however. Following practice the Alabama players, coaches and staff wished a happy birthday to long-time practice official Eddie Conyers. Conyers, who turned 90 on Monday, has served as an official the Crimson Tide practices since the early 1960s.
Alabama will be back out at practice on Wednesday as the team gets closer to A-Day on April 21.
