Bama Trivia...

on this day

3/6/1971

John Hannah, the star offensive lineman for the Tide and a star heavyweight wrestler a year ago, becomes the first Southeastern Conference track and field athlete ever to throw the shot put more than 60 feet when he tosses the 16-pound put 60-1 in a dual meet with LSU. Hannah also wins the discus with a throw of 177-9. Meanwhile, another footballer, Jim Krapf, is the star heavyweight on the wrestling team. Hannah is the only man ever to defeat Krapf, and he did it last year in an open invitational meet.
