Former Alabama Receiver Tyrone Prothro During The O'Bannon Trial: Alabama's Weight Room Was "Bigger Than This Courtroom"

Former Alabama wide receiver Tyrone Prothro is best known for a 2005 circus catch against Southern Mississippi, which helped Alabama top the Golden Eagles 30-21. 

Prothro, who last suited up in 2005, is back in the news as a part of the Ed O'Bannon-NCAA trial. Prothro discussed the culture of football at Alabama, as well as the catch that made him famous, and likely made the school and sponsors plenty of cash.

Prothro completely fractured his leg in 2005 against Florida, ending his football career. His scholarship was honored by Alabama, but he's had to undergo many surgeries to fix the injury.
