West Virginia QB Clint Trickett: Nick Saban’s daughter was my first kiss
If Nick Saban calls for a few extra blitzes during Alabama’s season-opening game Saturday against West Virginia, you’ll know why.
West Virginia starting quarterback Clint Trickett, whose family has a good relationship with Saban, admitted Tuesday that his first kiss was Nick’s daughter, Kristen. The admission came up when asked if he knows Saban well.
“His daughter was my first kiss back in the day,” Trickett said, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
“So yeah … I don’t know if I should have said that,” Trickett said. “She’s actually engaged now.”
Trickett moved to clarify quickly.
“For clarification, we were like six years old! Just so everyone knows that.”
For more context, Trickett’s dad, Rick, who is currently the offensive line coach at Florida State, used to coach on Saban’s LSU staff. Trickett’s brother, Travis, was once a graduate assistant for Saban. But Clint’s ties to Saban clearly trump everyone else’s.
I know he doesn’t do social media, but if Saban saw this tweet Trickett sent, he probably would be thankful his daughter broke things off early in life.
