Bama, Tennessee help storm relief efforts

Alabama coach Anthony Grant was among those in Tuscaloosa doing what he could to assist storm relief efforts Friday.

Grant told ESPN.com's Andy Katz he and his staff spent the afternoon distributing supplies to families. He is scheduled to participate in a telethon to raise money and also has set up a fund to help storm victims.

"It is comforting to see and know that there is a large mass of people trying to provide assistance and help any way they can," Grant said in a statement.

At Tennessee, senior John Fields and freshman Tobias Harris went to the regional blood bank and helped urge others to donate.

"We're going to donate blood for the victims of the tornado, give back to the community, give back and show that we really care about stuff like this," Harris said.
