VIDEO: Alabama Crimson Tide find summer fun on the water

Publish date:

Nick Saban seems to be enjoying his summer.

Saban, who agreed to an 8-year, $55.2 million deal to remain the football coach at the University of Alabama through 2022, took 10 of his players out last week on his ski boat on Lake Tuscaloosa, TV station ABC33/40 in Birmingham reported.

Anthony Orr, a senior defensive lineman from Madison, Ala., posted a short video of his coach behind the wheel and two of his teammates — safety Jarrick Williams and receiver DeAndrew White — on an inner tube, skirting across the water.

Several other players can be seen in the clip, which was posted on Instagram, including star receiver Amari Cooper, who appears to be holding on to the bottom of the boat's ski-rope tower for dear life.

Other players on the boat included Christion Jones, Landon Collin, Blake Sims, Brandon Ivory, Nick Perry and Xzavier Dickson, all of whom are expected to make significant contributions on the field this fall, ABC 33/40 said.
