The Alabama Crimson Tide, dating back to 1892, has produced hundreds of the greatest athletes in American college football. Over the last 125 years, the program has produced 239 all-conference honorees and 119 first-team All-Americans. This wealth of talent includes the following, some of the greatest stars in Alabama history.

– Derrick Thomas. Perhaps the best linebacker of the 1990s, he held a wealth of school records, including for most career sacks and most sacks in a season. Thomas played for the Kansas City Chiefs after leaving Alabama.

– John Hannah. Sports Illustrated once called this All-American the “best offensive lineman of all time,” a designation disputed by few. He was picked fourth in the 1973 draft and played for the New England Patriots his entire professional career.

– Ozzie Newsome. Today, he is one of the best general managers in the game. At Alabama, he was likely the best tight end the school has seen to this day. His career at Alabama ended with 102 receptions and a record-breaking average of 20.3 yards gained per pass.
