Players Drafted From Alabama

        NFL Players from Alabama
Alabama has been fortunate to have many high school football players move on to the National Football League. Over 500 players from the state have appeared in at least one NFL game since 1920. Six of these players achieved the highest honor of all in the game by being elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. They are Ken Stabler, Bart Starr, Ozzie Newsome, John Hannah, John Stallworth and Buck Buchanan. I think you would agree Alabama is well represented with these great players.

Which high school has produced the most players? The Murphy Panthers lead all other schools with 12 players having represented the school on Sunday. Vigor follows closely with eleven players. Other teams with at least ten players are Anniston, Woodlawn, Sidney Lanier and Central Phenix City.

The first player to appear in an NFL game was Pryor Williams from Athens when he suited up on the offensive line for the Detroit Tigers for three games.

Remember, to qualify a player must have played high school football for a team in Alabama and played in at least one regular season game in the NFL or any league recognized by the NFL. Many more players have appeared in preseason games and in Arena Football League games.
