Johnson Was Twice Alabama Captain
Readers of 'BAMA Magazine had the opportunity to select three defensive linemen 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 Jarret Johnson of Chiefland, Fla., who played for the Crimson Tide 1999-2002.
Johnson was a two-time captain (2001 and 2002) for Alabama. He played as a true freshman in 1999, including getting a couple of starts, and then was a three-year starter at defensive tackle.
Johnson was All-SEC three seasons. \
Although he was a tackle, he had defensive end type statistics with 60 quarterback hurries in his final three seasons. He also had a total of 23 sacks for a total of 193 yards and 25 tackles for losses of 22 yards. He was one of Alabama's top three all-time players in having combined tackles for losses and sacks.
Following his senior season he was an NFL draft choice.
Editor's Note: This is one in a series on members of the Alabama Team of the Decade.
