Tide Sports did an absolutely wonderful feature on Nick Saban’s West Virginia roots, his high school football career and relationship with his father. I highly recommend you check it out, because its very well-crafted and entirely worth your time.
This post is something, well, something a little less nuanced. You see, Tide Sports offered up an excellent highlight video of Saban’s high school days as a QB and DB. While he was quite good (the scrambles are reminiscent of Fran Tarkenton), one play stood out. It’s basically Saban getting absolutely rocked during a kickoff return.
I’m sure this happens to anyone who plays the sport, most especially anyone who stands in on special teams. But still … it’s kinda weird seeing Lord Saban manhandled in any fashion.
Oh well, in only mere hours we’ll see St. Nick delivering boots to asses like we’ve become accustomed.
