Hoping to spur more people to roll up their sleeves and get their first COVID-19 vaccination shot, officials with the Alabama Department of Public Health are turning to a phenomenon that unifies nearly every Alabamian: A love of college football.
The University of Alabama announced several weeks ago that students could earn free Bama Cash - money in their student accounts to buy food and other items - if they confirm they’ve been vaccinated for COVID-19 by a specific date.
Last year, COVID-19 hit close to home when Alabama head football coach Nick Saban missed one game because of a positive coronavirus test. He hopes that doesn’t happen to himself or any of his players this year.
Wednesday was day three of SEC Media Days, and the focus was on the national champions. Alabama is set to start the 2021 season against Miami this September, and the boys of fall are ready to play some football.
A perfect game from Montana Fouts kept Alabama softball in the winner’s bracket at the 2021 Women’s College World Series as the Crimson Tide defeated the defending national champions UCLA, 6-0, Friday night.
It didn’t take Nick Saban long Thursday to sum up how he feels about being back out on the golf course for his annual Nick’s Kids Foundation Golf Tournament, which was canceled last year due to the pandemic.
