MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Coach Nick Saban was in Mobile Thursday, June 6 at the Country Club of Mobile for the Nick's Kids Fund. The organization supports children, family, teacher and student causes.
"We all like to give back to the community in some kind of way – and this whole Nick's Kid's thing is really representative of my father," Saban said, "what he tried to do and that's what Nick's Kids is all about. He was big Nick and I'm little Nick – and he's still big Nick. My mother always said if you get an opportunity we want you to do something to enhance your father's legacy and try to help young people."
Nick's Kids raised $1.2 million in 2012 and the fund has distributed over another million to tornado relief in the part two months.
"My happiest day of the year is always the first day of practice when we have all the kids and organizations come in and we actually make a contribution to hopefully help them be successful," Saban said.
Many people came out to the event, including South Alabama Football Head Coach Joey Jones.
"I look at what Coach Saban has done as a football coach and I admire him for that. But what I admire more is him caring about young people. And that's what this is all about. Sometimes we get a lot of pressure on us to win a lot of ball games," Jones said, "but in reality – at the end of the day it's about affecting people's lives and that's why I'm very happy to be a small part of this."
Saban said the event goes beyond being out and getting to play golf.
"I enjoy playing golf – but I don't have a lot of time to play. But this event is more than the golf – it's about the people and we certainly appreciate all the people that make the team what it is – and we're able to help a lot of people because of it."
