At the time, Andrew Zow said he never thought about transferring.

But the mindset of a college athlete is a little different these days and the former University of Alabama quarterback isn’t sure how he would react if he wasn’t the starting quarterback.

Zow was recently interviewed on River Region Sports radio show.

It’s been nearly two years since Jeff Foshee agreed to step down from his position as Stanhope Elmore High’s head football coach. 

It’s a decision that continues to haunt him. His phone never rings, at least from those that could pull the strings and hire him. His latest job interview was for the head coaching position at G.W. Carver High. Like the other interviews, Foshee feels comfortable when he leaves the meeting, but it’s short-lived.

Antonio Langham is a name familiar to college football fans from the 1990s.

He has been immortalized by the Southeastern Conference’s “Storied” series after his MVP performance in the inaugural SEC Championship Game included an interception of Florida quarterback Shane Matthews for the game-winning touchdown in the final minutes of the nation’s first conference championship game in 1992.

But older college football fans or today’s football documentaries aren’t the teachers of this generation of high school defensive backs.
