Johnny Mack Brown
Class 1957

          Johnny Mack Brown played in one of the most important games in Crimson Tide history. The 1926 Rose Bowl was a watershed victory in Alabama as well as Southern football history. Prior to Alabama's win, Southern football did not enjoy the prestige it holds today. Trailing at the half 12-0, Alabama changed its offense to utilize Brown's pass catching abilities. In the third quarter, Brown scored two touchdowns on long pass plays of 61 and 38-yards. That year the Tide posted its first 10 win season. Johnny Mack Brown was described as "having a weaving elusive style that is beautiful to watch." After graduating from The University of Alabama he went on to become one of Hollywood's most popular western stars of the 30's and 40's.
