TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WHNT) - Contrary to popular belief here in the south, college football is not an official religion. Good luck telling that to anyone who plays for Alabama's head coach Nick Saban.
His teams have had a religious devotion to winning over recent years and it's no surprise they rely on faith to do so.
Saban's pastor at St. Francis Catholic Church in Tuscaloosa also doubles as the Crimson Tide's team Chaplain.
Father Gerald Holloway might not make any winning plays on the field, but his role with the team is just as valuable. Ryan Cody has his story.
