Emily Pitek

Alabama Crimson Tide


After suffering a career-ending injury, Alabama soccer player Emily Pitek funneled her energy from the field to the bleachers. Across the street from where her own sports dreams ended, Pitek now cheers for the university’s softball team at Rhoads Stadium. Every game, she leads RUFIO and SHARKBAIT chants in her signature striped overalls and pink sombrero. True to her colors, Pitek led the audience in a “Roll Tide!” cheer at the conclusion of her induction speech into the Fan Hall of Fame.
