i can’t believe I didn’t know this

Or maybe I did and just forgot. Fred Thompson is a native Alabamian, born and raised in Sheffield. He even began his college career at Florence State C.C., now known as the University of North Alabama.

Fred Thompson – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Early life and educationThompson was born in Sheffield, Alabama, the son of Ruth Inez (née Bradley) and Fletcher Session Thompson.[9][10] He attended public school in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee, graduating from Lawrence County High School. Thereafter, he worked days in the local post office and nights at a bicycle assembly plant.[11]

Thompson entered Florence State College, now the University of North Alabama, becoming the first member of his family to go to college.[12] He later transferred to Memphis State University, now the University of Memphis, where he earned a double-major in philosophy and political science in 1964, as well as scholarships to both Tulane and Vanderbilt law schools.[11] He went on to earn his J.D. degree from Vanderbilt in 1967.[12]

I now know he went to UNA, I know he served the Volunteer State in the Senate. It’s not quite accurate in this case, but I’ve always preferred one phrase for the moments where most Americans would say “hell yeah!”

Roll Tide! 

Also, give Fred money.
