DeMarcco Hellams is returning to the Alabama Crimson Tide football team for his senior season, according to his official Instagram account.

“These past three years at Alabama have been special to me,” the safety wrote.

“I’ve worked with some of the best coaches and staff that have helped mold me into a better player and a better person. I’ve also gotten to play with teammates that will be lifelong friends and made memories on the field that I will never forget. But when I chose the University of Alabama, I had three main goals –get my degree, be a leader for my teammates and win multiple championships. I still need time to take care of all three, and I can only do so by staying one more year. I can’t leave now knowing that I didn’t stay true to my goals. I realize that staying my senior season provides me with the best opportunity to grow as a player, as a student and as a man. This season did not finish how we would have liked.”

The Alabama Crimson Tide safety closed it out with a statement that should get fans excited.

“We have unfinished business to take care of in 2022,” DeMarcco Hellams wrote.
