All-America Center Makes The Team
Center is one of those football positions of which there is only one. Readers of 'BAMA Magazine selected Antoine Caldwell asd center when they chose the Alabama football Team of the Decade for the first ten years of the New Millennium (2000-2009). Caldwell, a native of Montgomery, played for the Crimson Tide 2005-08.
Caldwell was a finalist for the Rimington Trophy, given to the nation's top center, in his senior year. He started 48 games in his career and was an All-America and All-SEC as a senior.
He was a rare two-time Alabama captain, elected both as a junior and a senior.
He received Freshman All-America recognition in 2005. He began his career as a guard, but moved to center during his freshman season. He was SEC Lineman of the Week six times in his career.
As a senior, his teammates named him Bama's Most Inspiring Player. He passed up the opportunity to turn professional following his junior season, making him a candidate for the Lowe's CLASS Award, which goes to college athletes who excel in all areas and spend four years in college.
Following his Crimson Tide career, he was drafted by the Houston Texans of the NFL.
Editor's Note: This is one in a series on members of the Alabama Team of the Decade.
