From our pal, Ellis Metz, a nice interview of AJ over at Mobile Bay Magazine: Here's an excerpt. You can also follow Metz on Twitter

Did you get to speak with President Obama during your visits to the White House? What did you two talk about?

In 2011, I talked a pretty good bit with him. He told me he was proud of me. Then he said good luck in the following season. This past time, he gave me a big shout-out during his speech, so that was pretty cool. [9] I respect him to the fullest. When the President of the United States gives you a shout-out like that — it’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever been a part of. So afterwards, I told him thank you, and he told me again he was really proud of me. He said, "Man, I can’t believe you returned. I can’t wait to watch you again." Then he wished me good luck and said he hoped he saw me one more time.
