It looks like Nick Saban will definitely miss senior punter JK Scott next season.
Scott has had a remarkable career as far as punters and kickers go. A four-year player for the Crimson Tide, Scott has punted 231 times with an average punt of 45.8 yards. He has also been used in the kicking game more this season, going 8 for 8 on PATs and 1 for 3 on field goal attempts in 2017.
Scott truly is a weapon on special teams and has helped pin opponents back numerous times throughout this season. Still, it is not often that you see such an affectionate embrace from Saban.
Twitter user @ashleyshires shared the photo of Saban hugging Scott dressed in his graduation garb, and it is awesome:
The duo will get at least one more game together as Alabama gets set to take on Clemson in the Sugar Bowl. Kickoff is set for 8:45 pm EST New Year’s Day on ESPN.
