Alabama’s Scott Cochran uses catchphrase for charity

If you have spent time around the Alabama Crimson Tide football program, you have likely heard the phrase, “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!!!” echoing before practice as the team takes the field.

That is because Alabama’s strength and conditioning coach, Scott Cochran, has developed the chant as a bit of a catchphrase to hype up his players. In a way, he is a personal hype man for the Crimson Tide.

Now, he has a way of using that popular catchphrase for a good cause.

For the second straight year, Cochran will be starting The “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah 5K” — which is held this Saturday. The event is to benefit the Thomas Plott Foundation to fight cystic fibrosis.

“It’s just a fun way for us to give back,” Cochran’s wife, Cissy, said, via al.com. “I think it ties in with his role of strength and conditioning so it’s kind of an exercised-based event.”

It was Cissy and the mother of one of Thomas plot, a classmate of Cochran’s children, came up with the idea.

It is always great to see athletes and coaches using their platforms for a good cause and Cochran has certainly been able to do that. Not only is he helping young men in the Alabama program stay in shape, he’s making a positive impact in the Tuscaloosa community and doing some very impressive charity work.

Hats off to the Cochran family.
