High school coaches impressed with Saban's clinic

Don Kausler Jr., a writer for several outlets in Alabama, caught up with a few high school coaches following Alabama's high school coaching clinic late last week, and found that the coaches were very impressed with the quality and content of the camp. 

Alot of the coaches commented on the organization, enthusiasm and intensity of the practices.

"It's apparent when they let us watch practice that it isn't clinic talk," Brentwood HS safeties coach Clint Finch said. "They don't say one thing and then coach another."

Finch said that one thing in particular that Saban preached that he will carry with him is the old adage that "If you're not coaching it, you're letting it happen". He explained that alone was worth the price of admission.

Other coaches in attendance commented on the high quality speakers (Lou Holtz and Bill Parcells were among the guest speakers), and the attention to the small details that the staff has during drills.
