Peprah Had Quick Start For Tide
Readers of 'BAMA Magazine had the opportunity to select four defensive backs when they chose the Alabama football Team of the Decade for the first ten years of the New Millennium (2000-2009). One of those selected was Charlie Peprah of Plano, Texas, who played for the Crimson Tide 2002-05.
After being redshirted in 2001, Charlie Peprah was a Freshman All-America in 2002 as he was a starter in eight games and had 38 consecutive starts for Bama.
For his career the strong safety had 209 tackles and nine interceptions, which he returned for 214 yards (fifth in Tide history). He also caused four fumbles and recovered five.
As a sophomore, Peprah broke up 19 passes. He returned two interceptions for touchdowns in his career, a 35-yarder against Georgia in 2002 and a 51-yarder against South Florida to provide the first points in the Mike Shula coaching era.
The Academic All-SEC performer earned both his undergraduate degree and his master's degree before he played his final game.
Editor's Note: This is one in a series on members of the Alabama Team of the Decade.
