Quotable:

"I believe to this day that the Alabama Crimson Tide would never have won the national championship if we did not have the tornadoes," Elko said. "Because from that moment on, we started walking around saying, 'I'm not looking for a blessing to come into my life. To this town, to this state, to these other teammates, I want to be a blessing in someone else's life.' That's the best 68 I know."

Elko, who speaks to Alabama's football team frequently at the invitation of Saban, shared many of the motivational and performance-building thoughts he shares with the Crimson Tide, many of which are repeated frequently by Saban: 

"Responsibility is responding with ability."

"Don't let things outside of you drive you."

"Everything has a price."
