Current Alabama player Tyrone Prothro and former Tide great Shaun Alexander are up for ESPY awards.
Go here to vote for Tyrone and Shaun.
Here's the awards they're nominated for and their competition:
BEST MALE ATHLETE
Shaun is up against some stiff competition is this category. Could go to anyone.
This one shouldn't even be a contest. Prothro should win this one by a country mile. Simply the most amazing play I've ever seen. I know I'm biased, but that was a ridiculous catch.
BEST RECORD BREAKING PERFORMANCE
Shaun should win this one easily. Metzger's was a motorcycle stunt (cool, but shouldn't be up for this award), Pimentel set a Little League World Series record (yawn) and Roethlisberger gets the nod for becoming the youngest QB to win the Super Bowl (lame.)
BEST NFL PLAYER
This one is all Shaun.
Alabama players are up for four ESPYs, so go and vote them on to victory.
#1 is the correct assessment.
