Former Alabama LB Shaun Dion Hamilton is one of the many ex-Alabama stars who now plays for the Washington Redskins.

On Tuesday, he gave back to the community he grew up in near Montgomery, Alabama, making a donation to the local Boys and Girls Club.

As you can see in the video below, Hamilton donated a check for $1,500 to the organization, which he hopes will help inspire the kids to do great things:

He also challenged some of the other former and current Alabama players from the Montgomery area — like Mack Wilson and Henry Ruggs III — to give back when they have the means to do so.

Hamilton seems poised to have a bigger role for the Washington defense this fall. He had 27 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 16 games last season.
