Thomas's son, Darrion, stands with a bust of his father during the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Canton, Ohio today.

With the enshrinement of Derrick Thomas into the NFL Hall of Fame, the number of former Crimson Tide players so honored is now seven. In addition to the former Kansas City Chief, Alabama is represented by John Hannah (New England Patriots), Don Hutson (Green Bay Packers), Joe Namath ( NY Jets), Ozzie Newsome, (Cleveland Browns), Bart Starr (Green Bay Packers) and Dwight Stephenson (Miami Dolphins).

With Thomas's induction Alabama now stands at fourth on the list of schools represented in the hall, pulling out of a six-way tie for fifth (the inclusion of Michigan alum Ralph Wilson, Jr. this year keeps the Wolverines one player ahead of Alabama). The top nine are:

  • Southern California (11)
  • Notre Dame (10)
  • Michigan (8)
  • Alabama (7)
  • Illinois (6)
  • Minnesota (6)
  • Ohio State (6)
  • Oregon (6)
  • Syracuse (6)
  • Penn State (5)
