Shaun Edward Alexander (born August 30, 1977 in Florence, Kentucky) is an American football running back in the National Football League who is currently a free agent.[1] From 2001 until 2007, he was the featured running back for the Seattle Seahawks.

College career

Alexander accepted a scholarship offer from the University of Alabama. Alexander wasted little time in showing his prowess on the football field at the collegiate level. As a freshman in 1996, he ran for 291 yards, an Alabama single-game rushing record, and four touchdowns against LSU in Tiger Stadium. After deciding against declaring for the NFL Draft after his junior year in 1998, Alexander returned to Tuscaloosa and had a banner season. He was initially given Heisman consideration, but a sprained ankle in a game against Tennessee ended his chances of that. Nevertheless, Alexander still played a key role in leading the Tide to the SEC Championship in 1999, with his game-winning 25-yard touchdown run against third-ranked Florida in Gainesville, and also his dominating fourth quarter performance against in-state foe Auburn in the Iron Bowl.
