Alabama coach names child after ex-Tide LBs Anderson, Foster

Nobody can say Jeremy Pruitt isn't a players' coach.

The Alabama defensive coordinator and his wife, Casey, have named their newborn son after two of the Crimson Tide's top defensive players from last season: San Francisco 49ers first-round pick Reuben Foster, and Washington Redskins second-round pick Ryan Anderson.

Anderson, in turn, thanked his former coach for the gesture:

"Congrats to coach Pruitt and Casey on their newest addition Flynt Anderson-Foster Pruitt honored that they named this little guy after me and @ferrarifoster this little guy will always hold a special place in my heart!" Anderson wrote in his Instagram post. "Can't wait to meet him!!"

It's fair to assume that on a defense loaded with stars on the defensive side of the ball, Pruitt considered Anderson and Foster to be extra special.
