Jonathan Allen becomes Alabama's first national defensive player of the year...

on 12/06/2016

Crimson Tide Football:

For the first time, an Alabama player has won one of the two national defensive player of the year awards.

Tide senior defensive lineman Jonathan Allen won the Bronko Nagurski Trophy Monday night, which goes to the nation's top defensive player.

The Nagurski Trophy has been around since 1993. The Bednarik Award has been in existence since 1995.


Allen is one of the leaders of the Tide's top-ranked defense.

  • 4th on the team with 56 tackles - (Tied)
  • 3rd on the team with 13 stops for a loss
  • 1st with 8 1/2 sacks - (Tied)
  • 1st with 15 quarterback hurries
