Just off his selection in the fifth round of the NFL draft, freshly minted Cincinnati Bengals player AJ McCarron has made an important pick of his own.
The former Alabama quarterback and his new fiancée, Katherine Webb, have chosen Starla Chapman to be the flower girl at their wedding. Starla is a 5-year-old leukemia survivor, who met McCarron in 2011 when he visited the University of South Alabama Children's and Women's Hospital to hand out presents on Christmas Eve.

When they first met, reports The Post Game, Starla gave McCarron a yellow wristband inscribed with the words "Just Trust." He vowed to wear it, bringing Starla national attention when he played with it on during the BCS national championship game in 2012. (Alabama won the game 21 - 0).
According to the Alabama Media Group, it was Webb that actually popped the question to Starla, to which she responded, "Roll Tide."
