Photo: Nick Saban sends birthday flowers to player's mother battling cancer
It’s not often one hears of players transferring from Eastern Illinois to Alabama.
This offseason, Mike Bernier was determined to return closer to home to be closer to his mother, who is batting breast cancer. Nick Saban offered Bernier a roster spot as a preferred walk-on at Alabama.
Bernier’s mother had her birthday this week, and she’s especially appreciative of one gift.
