Fanney first started playing football at the age of six and describes that he discovered his passion for Football through his older brother, “[He] was always outside in the yard passing footballs. That's why I learned to love the game.”
Fanney has been a big fan of Alabama Football since the beginning. This Saturday, Oct. 15, 2022, The University of Tennessee beat Alabama’s Football team for the first time in 16 years and Fanney shares his thoughts, “Tennessee outplayed them this year so they deserved it, but I didn’t like it at all.” Fanney also shares, “I love Matte and I love Coach Sal. Coach Sal was actually here when I was in high school. I hope the best for Matte, maybe not the whole program but Matte for sure.”
