Jalen Hurts has joined Alabama football royalty.

He becomes the fourth former Crimson Tide quarterback, joining Bart Starr, Joe Namath, and Kenneth Stabler — to lead an NFL team to the Super Bowl. Starr, Namath, and Stabler were Super Bowl champions as Stabler was the latest one for the Tide.

He led the Oakland Raiders to an NFL Championship in the 1976 season. Hurts looks to become the first Alabama quarterback since Stabler to win a Super Bowl. He guided the Philadelphia Eagles to a 31-7 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game.

Hurts will battle either Patrick Mahomes (Kansas City Chiefs) or Joe Burrow (Cincinnati Bengals) in Super Bowl 57 on Feb. 12 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.
