Jalen Hurts to wear half Alabama, half Oklahoma helmet in Senior Bowl
With the 2020 Senior Bowl set to kick off on Saturday, dual-threat quarterback Jalen Hurts will be donning a collegiate helmet for the final time.
But Hurts spent his first three seasons at Alabama from 2016-18 before transferring to Oklahoma for his senior season in 2019.
So which team will he be representing this weekend?
Riddell made two custom helmets for Hurts.
One is obviously to protect the dual-threat quarterback on the gridiron, but the other is going to be autographed and auctioned off, with all the money going to Special Spectators.
Special Spectators, who Hurts worked with this past season at Oklahoma, is an organization that hosts VIP gameday experiences for seriously ill children and their families.
The Senior Bowl is slated for Saturday at 12:30 p.m. at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala.
Both Arizona State Sun Devils running back Eno Benjamin and wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk accepted invitations to the game, but Aiyuk will not participate due to a “minor hip issue” in preparation for ASU’s pro day and the NFL Draft Combine, according to SunDevilSource.com.
