    A non-offensive player, Jackson scored five times in his career, including three touchdowns in 2 punt return, 1 pick-six. The quarterback didn't do anything. Fight on, fight on, fight on men! Nicknamed "the Football Capital of the South" and later "the Old Gray Lady of Graymont Avenue," Legion Field was opened in and, at its peak, could hold more than 83, fans, dwarfing Alabama's on-campus stadium until major expansions at Bryant-Denny Stadium in the s and '90s. Excerpts are provided by Dial-A-Book Inc.

    It was the first time in 25 years that a rookie had earned the honor. It came down to a fourth-down play. And when I came home and opened the door, there was Coach Bryant. But we gave the other spot on the All-Decade Team to Upshaw, who was a terror in the Capital One Bowl in early and used that as a springboard for 9.

    The fullback would dive into the wave, then the quarterback would run down the wave until he had to give it up. Lee Roy Jordan — Jordan, considered one of the greatest linebackers of all-time, Jordan will forever be renembered in Orange Bowl annals as he led Alabama to a win over Oklahoma in the game with 31 tackles. He had my scholarship, and I signed right then. Coach Bryant had promised me an opportunity, and I thought that was all I would need. He appeared four times with the Bills and once with the Falcons.
