DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) — It’s a new ball-game for Tommy Tuberville, but he is taking campaigning for the U.S. Senate, in stride.
Tuberville was in Dothan Monday afternoon, speaking to more than 100 Rotarians and guests, at a weekly Rotary Club meeting.
The former Auburn Coach spoke mostly about football, leadership and the role sports plays in creating responsible adults.
It’s something he says this country has recently been lacking.
And while politics is new for Tuberville, when asked how different running for a political office is from coaching, he said, not much.
“I call it recruiting on steroids when you’re campaigning because you’re everywhere almost 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,” said Tuberville.
“But I love it. That’s what I’ve always done. I really enjoy people, and I enjoy being outside talking to people, listening to what they want and what they need,” Tuberville said.
Tuberville said he plans to win, and does not plan to take a paycheck.
