(WTVM) – The University of Georgia football team has released a stirring hype video ahead of their massive SEC showdown against the Alabama Crimson Tide.

The video, entitled "The Storm," the video highlights moments from the season narrated with the poetry of Mike Young.

“We grew a nation from three pillars, two words, and one heart. #BeatBama,” the caption of the video says.

A portion of the poem reads:

We got fire in our belly's heating up a dream in our hearts
A flame lit by the spark of ambition
Stoked by the billows of our age old tradition
And spread like wildfire by admission in to this secret garden between These sacred and ancient hedges

Though this garden grows no flowers,
We grow thunderstorms
That shake the ground for miles and miles around.

We grow the mighty and upright oak trees
That stand taller than their circumstance
With roots digging deep into conviction
And hold on harder than the obstacles surrounding them.

Kickoff for the Georgia Bulldogs (4-0, 1-0 SEC) and Alabama (3-1, 0-1 SEC) game is at 3:30 p.m. ET.

    Young boy hosts a lemonade stand for charity

    Wednesday, July 18 2018 8:37 PM EDT2018-07-19 00:37:22 GMT

    A facebook post seen by thousands in the lake area inspired a seven year old boy to make a difference. Channing's Lemonade is an idea hatched between Channing and his mother, with a goal of raising money for less fortunate children and families. Channing is frustrated though because he sees a lot of selfishness in the world. "Other people in the world don't want to help anybody but themselves. I care about them... I want them to have good times in their homes......
