Former Alabama star lineman gets ‘LANK’ tattoo

JC Latham isn’t going to ever forget being a part of the 2023 Alabama Crimson Tide.

The now former star Crimson Tide left tackle made sure of that on Thursday with his newest ink.

Latham played at Alabama for three years and started every game over the last two seasons at right tackle, turning into one of the best offensive linemen in the country.

In his final season in 2023, he gave up just two sacks the entire year and was named All-SEC as well as being named a team captain prior to the season.

Latham is about to begin his NFL career after being selected No. 7 overall by the Tennessee Titans.

When it comes to living out the ‘LANK’ motto, nobody did a better job than Latham himself and the offensive line as a whole.

The Tide offensive line went through some serious growing pains throughout the entire season, struggling tremendously in the early portion but beginning to figure things out as the season went on.

With a masterclass line performance in the SEC Championship against Georgia, the Tide bullied the 2x defending national champion Bulldogs all night and ended Kirby Smart’s push for a 3-peat.

Latham helped the team to ‘Let All Naysayers Know’ for three years, and now he has the marking so that he will never forget it.
