Social media star to attend season opener


Professional content creator AJ Greene, who has 3 million TikTok followers, 284k Instagram followers, and his own Snapchat show called  “Life of,” will be at the Tallassee vs. Reeltown game to film content, which entails comical commentary and interactions with fans.

The first episode of his Snapchat show featured AJ’s commentary of the National Pylon 7-on-7 Football Championship between Team TOA (led by five-star QB Nico Iamaleava) and Midwest Boom. 

AJ was on his way to the NFL with every team expected at his combine—until COVID canceled it. Then, he made a minute-long video sharing his story, which received 1.6M likes—catapulting AJ into his career as a professional influencer. Since then, he has done deals with brands like Gatorade (recently appeared in an an ad for them), Tyreek Hill’s SoulRunner, Manscaped, Crocs, and Raising Canes. AJ uses his content and story to inspire young fans battling challenges.
