Ranked as a Top Ten strong safety in the upcoming 2014 NFL Draft by CBS Sports, Alden Darby would be a key defensive weapon for any NFL organization. Darby attended Arizona State University and took full advantage of his opportunity with the Sun Devils. During his freshman year, he earned Hard Hat player for his work in ASU’s offseason strength and conditioning program. Any football player will tell you it all starts in the weight room. Darby continued to work hard on his game and his dedication paid off in 2012 when he earned All-Pac-12 Second-Team honors. Ranked fifth on the team in tackles with 80, including eight in the team’s bowl victory against Navy, and ranked Sixth All-Time on ASU's single-season interception return yards list with 154.

As a team captain, Darby was the first Sun Devil to earn the privilege of wearing the Pat Tillman Practice Jersey, which head coach Todd Graham awards to those who embody the positive characteristics of the football program and university. Capping of his senior year in the 2014 East-West Shrine Game, recording two interceptions in the game, Darby reached the end of his college football career. Darby had an unforgettable career with the Sun Devils, starting 28 of his 50 career games. He was selected as a 2013 Senior CLASS Award Second-Team All-American, made the 2013 All-Pac-12 First-Team, had 10 career interceptions returned for 253 yards along with two touchdowns, recorded 26 pass deflections, 217 career tackles, 155 solo, 8.5 for a loss, 4 career fumble recoveries, and had 3 forced fumbles. Darby was signed by the San Diego Chargers immediately following the 2014 NFL Draft.
