Jonathan Allen did much more than just watch fireworks for the Fourth of July week.
The 2017 No. 17 overall pick for the Washington Redskins went back down to his alma mater of Alabama as he and his longtime girlfriend Hannah Franklin married.
After exchanging vows at the Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Tuscaloosa, Ala., the two newly-weds hosted their reception at Alabama's Bryant-Denny Stadium.
Even as a native of Ashburn, Va., Allen's decision to have his special day back in Alabama demonstrates his love for Nick Saban's program. He's one of the few players among Crimson Tide's great defenses in the past 10 years to stay with the program for all four seasons.
The second-year defensive lineman and his wife have been together since Allen's junior year in 2015. They met in a study hall class, and the defensive lineman purposed to her on April 17, 2017, just 10 days before Allen would join the Redskins via the NFL Draft.
