While there were many former University of Alabama who displayed their own respective professional greatness over the course of the last year, only one stood out among the rest. 

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry. 

Henry's 2020 campaign was nothing short of sensational — rushing for 2,027 yards and 17 touchdowns on 378 carries and leading the Titans to an AFC South Division crown. 

He became only the eighth player in NFL history to rush for over 2,000 yards and now holds the franchise record for most rushing yards in a single season. 

The Pro Football Writers of America recently named him the Offensive Player of the Year. 

Henry won our weekly honors a total of six times, the most of any other athlete, and because of his efforts, he is the 2020 Bama Central Crimson Tide Pro Athlete of the Week.

2. Justin Thomas (golf)
