When you grow up with a sports fanatic dad and then attend the University of Alabama, you almost have to know something about college football. But as much as I love the football acumen Nick Saban has infused into the storied Alabama program, what I love even more is his leadership. Occasional sideline histrionics aside, Coach Saban has inspired leadership in his organization from the coaching staff, through the alum who excel in the NFL, to the 2017-2018 team vying for a 17th National Championship.
The only thing that makes me happier than seeing Saban disciples lead SEC football programs, is hearing about a leadership decision made by the team veterans who are quick to remind wayward teammates about the “Alabama way” of doing things.
I’ll be watching my Crimson Tide tonight and looking for leadership, discipline, determination…and a win!
“The most difficult part of my job as the head coach is not designing a blitz defense that will work against an opponent; nor is it navigating the vicious world of recruiting. My toughest job? Being a leader.” ~ Nick Saban
