Willie Roaf vs. Alabama, 1992

Louisiana Tech offensive guard Willie Roaf tears the helmet off of all-time Alabama right defensive end Eric Curry (80), while blocking for QB Sam Hughes on a play during Tech’s Sept. 26, 1992 game with the Crimson Tide at Legion Field in Birmingham, Ala. Alabama won the game 13-0, but NFL scouts said his performance in this game solidified Roaf’s reputation as a potential high NFL draftee after going head to head with Curry, a all-America player himself. Roaf was drafted the next spring, 1993, by the New Orleans Saints. He ended his playing career with the Kansas City Chiefs. He was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame, Class of 2012 on Aug. 4, 2012.
