'Bobblehead Hall of Fame' inducts Alvin Kamara wearing Tennessee Vols jersey By Knoxville News Sentinel
Alvin Kamara is a bobblehead now.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and MuseumTuesday unveiled two depictions of the 2017 NFL rookie of the year, who played running back in college for the University of Tennessee.
One doll features Kamara in his current New Orleans Saints uniform, and the other presents him as a UT Volunteer.
"Alvin is one of the NFL’s brightest stars, and we’re excited to be releasing his first two bobbleheads,” Phil Sklar, CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, said in a news release. “These bobbleheads will become great collectibles for all of Kamara’s fans as well as Saints and Volunteer fans across the world, especially as he continues to succeed both on and off the field.”
The dolls are individually numbered and sell through the Hall of Fame for $40 each. They are expected to ship in November.
Kamara was the 67th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. In his first year with the Saints, he rushed for 728 yards and had 826 yards receiving, for only the 11th 700/800 season by an NFL player.
A four-down back at Tennessee, Kamara finished his two-year career with 1,294 rushing yards, 683 receiving yards and 284 punt return yards.
He began his college career at Alabama, redshirting his freshman season before transferring to Hutchinson Community College in Kansas.
