Bowl season has been a busy one for former NFL MVP Shaun Alexander. He is in Santa Clara, California to watch his Alabama Crimson Tide in the College Football National Championship, but he recently celebrated his own personal honor.
Alexander is one of the newest members of the Orange Bowl Hall of Fame. He was part of the five-person class chosen by the Orange Bowl committee that included luminaries like former Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer, former Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops and current Nebraska coach Scott Frost.
Alexander was selected due to his performance in the 2000 game, when he rushed for 165 yards and three touchdowns. He joins a virtual whos-who list of the top names in college football over the past half-century.
That season, Alexander was the SEC Player of the Year at Alabama and a consensus All-American. He set 15 school records and three conference marks before going to the Seattle Seahawks in the first round of the NFL Draft.
Alexander was selected to three straight Pro Bowls from 2003-05 and was a first-team All-Pro in 2004 and 2005. In 2005, he won his MVP award after leading the NFL with 1,880 yards and 27 touchdowns.
In Alexander's final season with the Seahawks, he became just the eighth player in league history with over 100 rushing touchdowns. He retired after the 2008 campaign and is a member of the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame.
