Defensive Plays

Alabama football teams have always been known for their great defense. Coach Bryant’s 1961 team gave up a total of 25 points the entire season. When asked about the ’61 team, Bryant said, “they played like it was a sin to give up a point.” Over time, two characteristics have defined Alabama’s great defenses. One is that Alabama has consistently recruited great players; the Tide history is filled with such names as Jordan, Baumhauer, Krauss, Bennett, Thomas, Teague, Cody, Darieus, and McClain.
