Alabama head coach Nick Saban is focused on his team finishing strong against Kansas State in the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

The Crimson Tide had its third practice at Caesars Superdome on Wednesday since Monday’s arrival in New Orleans, La.

Before its third session, Saban and the players visited Children’s Hospital to put smiles on the faces of the youth.

Saban signed autographs, several players took photos with children and played games, and Saban tried to showcase his soccer skills. The 71-year-old has always preached that people won’t always remember what you did on the football field, but they will remember how you helped them as a person. It was a good moment to see Crimson Tide players bring joy to the hospital.

Alabama takes on the Wildcats in Saturday’s matchup at 11:00 a.m. CT.
