Auburn’s Bryan Harsin among other varsity coaches in town for 28th annual L’Arche football preview

MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) – Some of the biggest names in college football come to Mobile for L’Arche’s 28th Annual Football Preview and FOX10 News spoke with many of them.

David Morris, founder of QB Country, said: “Just amazing football talent here. I think there were three guys taken in the 3rd round of the NFL Draft by Mobile. It’s football country here.

Some local names returning to Mobile like former Citronelle Wildcat, now Louisville offensive coordinator, Lance Taylor.

Taylor was grateful that his parents could be in the room with him.

“When you come from this area and leave, you have a greater appreciation when you come back. So it’s really nice to be able to come back,” Taylor said.

While football was the main topic of discussion, the evening was more important than sports. It benefits L’Arche Mobile, a nonprofit that creates housing and community for people with intellectual disabilities.

After a heated war of words between Alabama head coach Nick Saban and Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher, the name, image and likeness rule, allowing college players to getting paid in some cases was what everyone was talking about.

South Alabama offensive coordinator Maj. Applewhite said that made his job more difficult.

Auburn head football coach Bryan Harsin said this new world of college football isn’t bad, but it does have its flaws.

“There are obviously a lot of people wondering if what we’re doing is the right thing. it’s not the bad thing, it’s just how you do it.

University of Alabama offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien was present at the event, but did not answer any of our questions.
