Former Auburn assistant football coach added to ALBBAA board

The Alabama Black Belt Adventures Association (ALBBAA) recently selected a former Auburn University football coach to its board.

Former Tigers coach Joe Whitt is a new board member of ALBBAA. The organization made the announcement last week.

Whitt played football at Alabama State University, earning undergraduate and master’s degrees. After coaching high school football, Whitt joined the staff at Auburn. He was a part of six SEC titles, two undefeated seasons and coached in 20 bowl games before retiring in 2005.

Whitt is a member of the Alabama State University Board of Trustees and wa inducted into the Blount (Ala.) High School, Lee (Ala.) High School, and Mobile Sports Halls of Fame. He is also the recipient of the 2018 Outstanding Achievement Award from the American Football Coaches Association.

“The economic impact related to hunting, fishing, field-trialing and tourism contributes to the Black Belt economy in a major way,” Whitt said. “There is nothing I enjoy more than watching bird dogs work in the areas around Union Springs – the Field Trial Capital of the World –  and I am excited to join the board and help promote this beautiful area of our state to others.”

ALBBAA Founder and board President Thomas Harris said Whitt will be a great addition to the board.
