Alabama State fans got a treat Tuesday night. The school’s Coaches Caravan made a stop in Dothan. Fans got up close and personal with the head coaches for ASU football, baseball, softball, golf, track, and even bowling. This is the third year for the caravan, but it's the first time the Hornets visited Dothan. Interim Athletic Director Melvin Hines said it's important to get out and meet the fans—especially in a place like Dothan, which has so many ASU supporters.
“Alabama State has a great fan base in this area so it's an opportunity to bring our coaches here to meet the fans up close and in person. Give them an opportunity to shake hands, take pictures, and ask all the questions," he said.
Head Football Coach, Reggie Barlow, said, “It’s an opportunity for us to embrace our alumni that lives in this area and also, you know, there is outstanding football that is played in the area and we've been fortunate enough to get a kid or two from down here."
This was the 6th stop on the Coaches Caravan. It will wrap up at the school’s new football stadium on July 31st.
