EverythingTop10 is proud to present, “The
Top 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Alvin Kamara!” #10. Kamara’s mother is Liberian. There are many African Americans plying their
trade in the NFL, but only a few African players ever make it through to the NFL Draft. With a Liberian mother, Kamara made the list
of African players in the NFL in 2017. He was raised in a Liberian-American household,
with his mother having fled the war-torn Liberia during the height of the civil war. Little is known of his father, though. #9. He struggled with “behavioral issues”
during his freshman season at Alabama. Off the field problems plague even the best
of NFL players. In his freshman season, Kamara suffered a
debilitating knee injury and was unable to break through into a team that featured a
star-studded running back lineup. Given the fact that he never saw the field,
it is perhaps understandable that he suffered issues off the field and disagreements with
his coach in his freshman year at the University of Alabama. His antics, which saw him miss a week of training
in November that season, saw him and teammate Xzavier Dickson suspended from their bowl
game and banned from practicing with the team. #8. Kamara attended Hutchinson Community College. He is now a well-known running back, but his
path to NFL stardom has been less than ideal. After getting suspended at Alabama, Kamara
attended Hutchinson Community College, a place sold to him as popular for resurrecting otherwise
dying football careers. It was a gamble that paid off for him as his
success with the Hutchinson Blue Dragons propelled him to one of the top junior college prospects
in the country. Here, he earned a 5-star rating from Rivals.com
and Scout.com. #7. He led the charge as a redshirt junior. Kamara came in as a redshirt to the Tennessee
Volunteers, but ended up leading the charge as a junior. In his redshirt sophomore year, Kamara played
all 13 games accounting for up to 144 yards and two touchdowns. It was in his junior year that he truly shone
through, leading the charge even though the running back line-up had not changed much
from the previous year. #6. Kamara has a checkered past. Despite his against-all-odds story, it is
hard to ignore his problematic background. He has had a checkered past, once getting
arrested in 2014 when he was 19 for driving on a suspended license. He only spent about 8 hours at the Gwinnett
County jail before being released in the wee hours of the morning. This, combined with his suspension and troubles
in college show just how hard he has worked to get where he is today. #5. He was one of the top prospects coming out
of high school. Kamara was the typical early success story
coming out of high school. He was considered one of the top running back
talents in the country, rated the number 1 all-purpose back in the 24/7 Composite Sports
Rankings. He was ranked in the top 5 at Georgia and
was selected in 2013 to participate in the Under Armour All-America Game. He also earned the Georgia Mr. Football honors
after leading his high school to its first state championship. His success in high school saw him receive
a myriad of scholarship offers, eventually settling for the University of Alabama under
head coach Nick Saban. #4. Kamara has struggled with injuries. He has had his fair share of struggles with
injuries. In fact, some of the biggest steps in his
career were forced after injury, most notably in 2012 when he took a redshirt for a knee
injury at Alabama. He has struggled through different types of
injuries, from concussions to the longer-term knee injuries over the years. #3. He was one of the smartest running backs in
the 2017 NFL Draft. The Wonderlic score is a popular measure used
by employers to determine the general abilities of their employees, their ability to solve
problems and adapt to different situations. The Wonderlic test is used in different settings,
from college admissions to entry-level jobs and in football. In 2017, Kamara had the highest Wonderlic
score of any running back in the 2017 NFL draft, proving just how smart he is. #2. Kamara considers himself a foodie. Think about it as a secret hobby, but Kamara
believes he is a food enthusiast. He has dined at most of New Orleans’ famous
high-end establishments, and prides himself on his ability to identify the hidden gems
at every street corner. He apparently has grown fond of beignets and
oysters and especially loves the char-grilled variety. His goal is to sit at every great restaurant
in New Orleans. He also loves his Airheads, and has them in
almost all flavors at his home, except in watermelon flavor apparently. #1. He is dating New Orleans stripper, Just Ace. After a whirlwind romance that saw Just Ace
post some pretty revealing photos and info about Kamara, the two reportedly broke up. Just Ace had accused Kamara of cheating around
the time she posted photos allegedly to embarrass him for the size of his manhood. Recent photos have however emerged of the
two clubbing together, a clear sign that they might just be back to business as usual. The two were spotted at the beginning of October
celebrating together after the Saints’ win over the Cowboys. That’s all folks! Please leave a like if you enjoyed the video
