Alabama football head coach Nick Saban looks to add another award to his list, as he will receive the ninth annual Blanton Collier Award Friday at the Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2015 induction ceremony. The Blanton Collier Award is named after former Kentucky and Cleveland Browns coach Blanton Collier.
It’s presented to individuals that have achieved excellence on the field as well as in the community. Saban is a four-time national champion, but his Nick’s Kids foundation has brought many opportunities for youth in Alabama.
Saban’s award ceremony will be held on June 26, at the Brown Theatre in Louisville, Ky.
All benefits from the event will go to Kosair Children’s Hospital.
