BIRMINGHAM -- On a weekend that included an SEC Championship and a berth in the inaugural College Football Playoff, Alabama had even more to celebrate Sunday night.

To recognize personal player achievements for the 2014 season, the Crimson Tide held its annual award banquet at the Cahaba Grand Conference Center.

Awards ranging from "Most Valuable Player" to "Unsung Hero" were presented at the ceremony. In all, the team handed out 17 different awards, some with multiple winners. Landon Collins, Amari Cooper, Jalston Fowler and Blake Sims were all selected as permanent team captains and will have their hands and feet cemented into the concrete surrounding Denny Chimes forever.

Following the awards session, Alabama coach Nick Saban spoke to a crowd that included players, coaches, school administration and support staff to recap the season and highlight the team’s goals for the upcoming semifinal game at the Allstate Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on New Year’s Day.
