Walt Gary was a champion of life. He's known as the biggest Bama fan in Tuscaloosa. He was a great athlete in Special Olympics and the Miracle League of Tuscaloosa. Nick Saban met with him weekly to discuss the game and how many points he wanted Bama to score.

Several days before a big Bama game I once asked him "Whats key to a Bama victory this weekend?" He said, "I would tell you buddy, but you might announce it on the radio and I don't want LSU to know."

"Walt won numerous health battles in this life, but lost the war today at the age of 36" -Don Hartley

"Our hearts are hurting at the passing of Walt" -Nick Saban

Rest in peace Walt, and tell John Mark we all said Roll Tide.
