The Alabama Football program will have its 23rd player in program history in the College Football Hall of Fame with Antonion Langham being named in the Class of 2024. Langham spent four seasons as a member of the Alabama Football team becoming one of the best defensive backs in college football and one of the best in program history.

Langham is the current program leader in interceptions with 19 career interceptions. George Teague and Antonio Langham formed a formidable secondary helping the Alabama Football team win the 1992 National Championship under coach Gene Stallings. Langham is one of the most decorated players in Alabama Football program history as a National Champion, Consensus All-American, Jim Thorpe Award Winner, and Jack Tatum award winner.

Antonio Langham will forever be remembered for his pick-six in the Inaugural SEC Championship game in which the Alabama Football team won 28-21 over the Florida Gators. The Pick Six saved Alabama Football's perfect season helping the team advance to the National Championship against Miami.

Alabama Football: Langham one of the more underrated players in program history

When the names of some of the best players in Alabama Football program history come up it's not very often you hear Langham's name mentioned. That may be due to the sanctions that came from Langham hiring an agent before leaving college but, on the field, few defensive backs have been better. The only other defensive back in program history to win the Thorpe Award is Minkah Fitzpatrick. Langham ranks second All-time in interceptions for any player in SEC History with the next Alabama Football player three interceptions behind his 19 interceptions. Being recognized as a College Football Hall of Famer is an incredible honor and one that is much deserved for one of the more underrated players in Alabama Football History.
