Alabama head coach Nick Saban, Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher and Florida State offensive line coach Rick Trickett will be making their way back to West Virginia this Wednesday, as they are scheduled to make a special presentation supporting area football programs who were affected by the devastating floods on June 23rd. The West Virginia natives, along with U.S. Senator Joe Manchin, will be making their way to Clay High School to present the donations of football uniforms and equipment by high school and college football teams across the country.

Jimbo Fisher wasted no time after learning that many of the area football programs lost everything in the flood, reaching out to high school coaches in Florida for uniform donations.

Soon after, Nick Saban joined in the effort by asking the same from high school coaches across Alabama.

Nick Saban and Jimbo Fisher hail from Monongah and Clarksburg, respectively, two West Virginia towns about 20 miles from each other. The pair have worked together in the past, as Fisher served as offensive coordinator at LSU under Saban.
