Derrick Henry will forever be in the Alabama history books.

In Monday night’s national championship game, Henry broke the Crimson Tide’s all-time rushing record. The record was previously held by Shaun Alexander.

For a school that’s recently produced running backs such as Trent Richardson, Mark Ingram and Eddie Lacy, that’s awfully impressive. Congratulations to Mr. Henry.

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for NCAA.com since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, FOXSports.com and NBA.com. Joe’s claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
