Harry Gilmer in Images

Harry Gilmer was one of the most electrifying players of his era. Here's a glimpse of why he was considered so amazing.

Harry Gilmer was one of the greatest players in Crimson Tide history. The now 90-year-old Glimer was an Alabama passer in the 1940s, long before the era of television.

Here are a number of photos and a short video (below) courtesy The Bryant Museum that might give you an idea of what it was like to watch him play.
