Saban Is Team Focus Keynote Speaker

Mobile-based Team Focus hosted its eighth annual fundraiser, “A Night With Nick Saban,” Thursday with a capacity crowd at South Alabama's Mitchell Center. The Alabama coach was the keynote speaker.

Former Alabama and NFL running back Bobby Humphrey, best-selling author Andy Andrews, and Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson were “Champion of Life” award recipients.

Presented by Team Focus and the Bowl, Team Focus recognizes individuals for excellence in their specific fields and in the community.

Former college football coach and network broadcaster Mike Gottfried and his wife, Mickey, are co-founders of the faith based non-profit organization. The mission is to mentor fatherless boys and young men, ages 10-18. Over 4,000 across the country have benefited from the efforts of the foundation in the past 15 years. Among the Team Focus programs provided are individual tutoring, academic support, scholarship opportunities, summer leadership camps, winter and spring mini-camps, monthly social activities, and newsletters.

Nick Saban addressed the media following his remarks to the audience.
