About this item

A devastating tornado struck Tuscaloosa and the

University of Alabama campus on April 27, 2011.

Never before did this tight-knit community have to

overcome such a tragedy. In the debris, lives were

lost and dreams were shattered, but the town pulled

together as "One."

The "One" motto carried over to the Crimson

Tide football players, many of whom helped look for

survivors on that fateful April afternoon. When they

returned to practice, Alabama players and coaches

decided the best way to honor the fallen and the

community would be by winning the school's 14th

national championship. And that is exactly what they


From Tornado To Title No. 14 is

narrated by UA's Tommy Ford and illustrated

in images taken by Kent Gidley and his

staff of photographers at the University of

Alabama. You will read about and see the

tornado damage, the digging through debris,

the rebuilding process, and the involvement

of Tide head coach Nick Saban and his wife,

Terry, along with the Alabama players.

When the season opened, there was no

denying the Tide, as they started out 8-0

before a narrow 9-6 defeat to top-ranked

LSU. But the Tide, much like the residents

of Tuscaloosa, got up off the ground, dusted

themselves off and returned to the task at

hand. After three more victories, Alabama

had earned its way to the BCS National

Championship Game and a rematch with

LSU. On Jan. 9, 2012, in New Orleans, the

Crimson Tide defense rose to the occasion,

shutting out the Tigers 21-0 for Alabama's

14th national title in school history.

Produced in collaboration with the University

of Alabama athletic department, this 160-page

book from Whitman Publishing measures 10

inches by 10 inches and is available for $29.95
