After leading his club to a second consecutive national title, Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron instantly etched his name into a special place in Crimson Tide football lore.
With a senior season left to play this fall, McCarron has a chance to write a final chapter in his college career that can move him to the top of the list as the greatest quarterback in Tide history.
That previous sentence is an extremely powerful one, considering the legacy of players that have lined up under center over the years at the Capstone.
While McCarron has spearheaded Nick Saban’s modern dynasty, past legends like Pat Trammell and Joe Namath are just a few of the notable quarterbacks that carried the torch for some of Paul “Bear” Bryant’s best teams in the 1960's.
Those field generals represent a long history of winning and excellence that is best personified by a school that has won 15 national championships.
