From football with the Crimson Tide to Hollywood, we are CrimsonAti Proud of Brandon Moore. This graduate of Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy and UA played for the Crimson Tide from 2012 to 2015.

He stars in “The Mayor Of Kingstown” on Paramount+ on January 22nd (season 2, episode 2). He was a stunt double for Michael Chiklis in the football movie ”The Senior”, his athletic backround coming in handy.
