Don Hutson
Class 1951

      Don Hutson set the standard for pass receivers. Tall, willowy and blessed with deceptive speed and varied gifts, Hutson was the first to perfect the techniques of catching the ball "in traffic." He made the end-around a devastating threat and shifting speeds a must. In the 1935 Rose Bowl Hutson grabbed six passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns. That year he was named All-America. Hutson was described as "the greatest pass-catching speed merchant end."

       A member of the Crimson Tide's Centennial team, Hutson is also a member All-time College team of 1969 and the All-Century team of 1999. One of seven Crimson Tiders in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
