Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide football team have gotten very familiar with President Barack Obama over the past few years and they will once again be meeting with the POTUS at the White House next Wednesday, the White House announced on Thursday. It will be the team’s third visit to the capital in the past four years.

The White House released a statement today:

“The President will also continue his tradition of honoring sports teams for their efforts both on and off the field by recognizing the efforts by the Crimson Tide to give back to their community.”

Alabama will be honored for the national title victory at a ceremony that will take place at 1:05 p.m ET.

While Saban and the Crimson Tide are familiar with making the trip to Washington D.C., they still treasure and appreciate every opportunity they get to spend time with the president of our country.

“We don’t get many opportunities to meet the president, spend a minute with him, talk to him a minute, have him acknowledge something you accomplished,” Saban said. “I think it’s something that’s really special for the players. It’s a unique experience for them.”

It is very unique and an experience that the players will never forget.

It’s not too often that members of the United States get to meet with the nation’s leader, but these young men at Alabama will be getting the chance to do just that… again.

      Just hope it didn’t cut into his schedule of killing US citizens with remote controlled planes or backing a genocide in Libya.
