AJ McCarron and 5 year-old Starla Chapman share a special bond that dates back to The University of Alabama’s national championship win over LSU during the 2011 season.

AJ visited Starla, a leukemia survivor, as she was battling cancer in the hospital and the two became close.

Their strong bond continues to this day which is why it’s probably only fitting for Starla to be the flower girl in AJ’s upcoming wedding with Katherine Webb.

 AJ’s mother, Dee Dee Bonner, made the announcement in a tweet yesterday that stated:

Nothing like listening to @_KatherineWebb ask @Team_Starla to be flower girl and her response? ROLL TIDE! best reaction ever #justtrust
