None Will Forget Britt Inspiration
Readers of 'BAMA Magazine had the opportunity to select four offensive linemen (in addition to center) 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 Wesley Britt of Cullman, who played for the Crimson Tide 2001-04.
In his senior season, Wesley was able to play on the same team with two brothers, defensive lineman Justin and offensive lineman Taylor. Wesley was a star left tackle who was winner of the Jacobs Award as the SEC's top blocker as selected by league coaches.
He was a four-year starter after redshirting in 2000. He was All-SEC three years and received All-America recognition as a junior and senior. He was also a Freshman All-SEC player. Britt also earned Academic All-SEC recognition and played his senior season as a graduate.
He missed four games of his junior season after suffering a broken leg against Tennessee, a dramatic situation in which he roused the Bryant- Denny crowd while being taken from the stadium. He had started 34 consecutive games before the injury.
Following his Alabama career, he played professionally for the New England Patriots.
Editor's Note: This is one in a series on members of the Alabama Team of the Decade.
