UAB football is officially back!

The Blazers football program shut down in December of 2014 due to budget issues, but the program was quickly resurrected after enough money was raised. The picture above represents UAB’s first practice since the shutdown, which is a huge step for the team actually playing again in 2017.

Good luck to UAB and their future players, as college football will be glad to welcome them back 18 months from now.
