Saban, Moore Accept Championship Trophies

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (WHNT) – Alabama head coach Nick Saban and Athletics Director Mal Moore accepted four trophies on the team’s behalf Tuesday.

They were presented with the Associated Press Trophy, the Football Writers Association’ Grantland Rice Trophy, the McArthur Bowl Championship Trophy and The Coaches’ Trophy.

“I’m proud of our team and everyone in our organization for the great job they did last year.” Saban said.  “Everybody at Alabama, including our fans, have been very helpful in helping us be successful.”

“I hope that we all appreciate what we accomplished, and what it took to get here, rather than just revel and marvel in what we really did,” Saban added.  “If you appreciate something and you know what it took, you may be more committed in the future to continue to be successful.”

Saban also said the team is looking ahead to next season.

“We’ll have a lot of challenges next year, and the team we have for next year is 0-0.”
