@TreyDeuce32RTR: Ab to do some community service at #theodoreHS spreading some holiday cheers!
@TreyDeuce32RTR did some community service for the Bama Nation when he decided to come back next year! RTR
Definitely...it's almost an embarrassment of riches when it comes to our student athletes. Really proud of how active they are in their communities and around the world.
Thanks for the post.
As little time as these guys get away from Football, Id say they DESERVE to be selfish with their time with family/friends... CLASS!!!!!
Seriously. We have the odd slip-up off the field here and there but time and again our football players especially make us proud with their maturity, selflessness, and dedication to community service off the field. Mosley doing community service on Christmas eve, Upshaw raising money for tornado relief, Barrett going on his mission trips, and how many hospital visits and photos and autographs....these stories pop up on this board with regularity, and I don't believe for a second that anywhere near all of them make it to us here. Every coach in the country talks about trying to develop the character of their players, but I doubt any of them commit to this more than Saban, and I think that is the primary reason for our sustained and incredible success over the last several years. Loyalty to the coach inspires effort, which leads to accurate execution and mental toughness, and I can't imagine what would make a player more loyal than the coach teaching him how to be a great person and a man.
