Alabama football head coach Nick Saban said the 1970 shooting of student protesters at Kent State made him appreciate a lot of things during his press conference on Monday.
Saban was a student at the university at the time when the Ohio National Guard shot at students protesting the Vietnam War on May 4, 1970. Four students were killed and nine more were wounded.
“To have students on your campus shot, killed and –actually, didn’t see it happen, but saw the aftermath, right after it happened,” Saban said “it made me have a lot of appreciation for a lot of things.”
Alabama plays Kent State at home this week.
