TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Gene Stallings, the former head football coach at the University of Alabama, is among those helping emergency workers after the state was slammed by storms.
Stallings was out Thursday grilling hamburgers for emergency
workers in a parking lot along a mostly demolished street in
Tuscaloosa. The college town was especially hard-hit by the storms
that spawned tornadoes and left more than 250 people dead across
The coach, who led Alabama to a national title 1992, says he was
in town for a golf tournament that has since been canceled.
Stallings says he just wanted to help however he could and make
life a little better for people.
He says "it just didn't feel right to play golf."
