Fox Sports South:
An Alabama football player was hospitalized after an early morning fight, where shots were fired, said a person familiar with the situation.
Receiver DeAndrew White is being held Thursday at DCH Regional Medical Center, the person told The Associated Press Thursday on condition of anonymity because neither Alabama nor the police have identified the individual.
Tuscaloosa Metro Homicide Unit commander Loyd Baker said police responded to reports of a fight and shots fired at 2:10 a.m.
He declined to identify the 20-year-old man involved in the fight or provide any details of his injuries.
Baker said a 31-year-old man was found unconscious with severe head injuries on the sidewalk about a block away from where the fight occurred.
"We're not 100 percent sure there's any relation," Baker said.
Baker said two 22-year-olds -- Ryan Javaris Hamilton and Quamayne Rakesh Tolbert -- are charged with reckless endangerment for firing handguns in the air.
"They say to disperse the crowd," Baker said, adding they weren't involved in the fight.
White, a sophomore, caught 14 passes for 151 yards and two touchdowns last season.

As we mentioned earlier in the week when we told you about Alabama’s championship trophy being accidentally shattered, it’s likely that no one feels worse about the incident than the player’s father who caused it.

President Barack Obama is playing host to the national champion University of Alabama Crimson Tide football team at the White House.
Obama, an avid sports fan, has followed a presidential tradition of inviting sports champions to come to Washington to be recognized for their exploits. NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart was honored at the White House on Tuesday.
The Crimson Tide had a small accident this past weekend when their BCS Championship crystal ball was shattered (karma … still mad), but Nick Saban doesn’t want the person who caused the accident to worry about it. I’m sure, as the father of a player, the man, yet to be identified, has enough regret over the accident. Apparently he tripped … Continue reading …

Longtime Alabama baseball fans had their memories tested at Sewell-Thomas Stadium. Had it really been 29 years since David Magadan recorded the 64th and final double of his magnificent Crimson Tide career? And when was the last time Bama lost to Mississippi Valley State?
Vanderbilt (17-20, 6-9) travels to Tuscaloosa this weekend to take on the Alabama Crimson Tide (14-24, 4-11). The Tide recently split a Wednesday doubleheader against Mississippi Valley State after being swept at the top team in the West, LSU.
Many years ago when Vanderbilt was frequently an early season football opponent for Alabama, the feeling was that if the Crimson Tide was off to a poor start that there was nothing better to cure the ails than a game against the Commodores. Unfortunately, that is not necessarily true in baseball.
