"Seven-month-old Samuel Bryant McKenzie at the 20th Bear Bryant Namesake Reunion. The event is held annually on the day of @alabamafbl's home opener to recognize people named for the team's legendary coach, Paul William Bryant. Today, the name makes Samuel became one of 602 officially registered namesakes of Bryant, who coached at Alabama from 1958 to 1982. His appearance was iconic: weathered countenance, trademark houndstooth hat. His persona was gruff and distant — "a magnetic, scary John Wayne type" is how the novelist Richard Price described him in a Playboy magazine profile. But every autumn Sunday afternoon, he entered Alabamians' living rooms via "The Bear Bryant Show." Photo by Bryan Meltz for @nytimessports. #bearbryant" By nytimes on Instagram.
