Alabama players, fans, and the NFL world are amazed by Trevon Diggs.

He came to the University of Alabama as an athlete in 2016.

Diggs started as a wide receiver, but a change to defensive back has elevated him to superstar status in the National Football League. In his second season with the Dallas Cowboys, Diggs has become one of the best cornerbacks in football. He recorded his 11th interception (league-high) of the season in Sunday’s 56-14 victory for the Cowboys over Washington. According to the Cowboys’ Public Relations department, Diggs is tied with Everson Walls (1981) for the most picks in a season in team history.

He has the most interceptions by a player for a season since 1981. Diggs is tied for third-most interceptions in a single season since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. He needs three picks to tie Nite Train Lane’s record of 14 from 1952 with the Los Angeles Rams.

Lane has the most interceptions for a season in NFL history.

Current and former Tide players congratulated Diggs on Twitter. The NFL world has also taken notice of his skills.

Diggs won two SEC Championships (2016, 2018) and a national championship (2017) at Alabama.

He’s helped the Cowboys clinch an NFC East title. Diggs is in the running for NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
