The Alabama Crimson Tide dominated the Ohio State Buckeyes in the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday night, rolling to a 52-24 victory to take their third title in six years.
Plenty of astounding plays were made en route to Alabama’s dominant win. However, one of the most impactful highlights of the game came on its final snap. Senior center Landon Dickerson was able to take the field one last time to share in his team’s championship win.

At the time, it looked as though Dickerson would have to miss out entirely on his team’s run through the playoff.
But on Monday night, with the game in hand, Dickerson was able to get one more snap in as the Alabama center. As the Crimson Tide lined up in victory formation, head coach Nick Saban sent Dickerson out onto the field to enjoy the championship he had earned.

While Dickerson didn’t get to play through the final games of his collegiate career as he had hoped to, he was on the field with his team when they were finally declared champions.
