Good, Bad and Oh My


Good news, bad news and one "oh my." That is how I would describe the first day of fall camp for the football team.

Good News:
Every single one of the new players reported and are healthy. This is significant, especially when compared to previous years at Auburn. Below is a list of new players and their accompanying jersey numbers, compliments of AL.com

41 - DB Kalvaraz Bessent (5-11, 165)
11 - DB Markell Boston (6-0, 191)
84 - WR Myron Burton Jr. (6-2, 200)
57 - LB Deshaun Davis (5-11, 230)
73 - OL Austin Golson (6-4, 300)
59 - DL Raasheed Kennion (6-6, 225)
86 - DL DaVonte Lambert (6-2, 293)
46 - TE Chris Laye
94 - DL Devaroe Lawrence (6-2, 284)
39 - DB Tray Matthews (6-1, 192)
31 - HB Jakell Mitchell (6-3, 218)
36 - RB Kamryn Pettway (6-0, 239)
69 - LS Ike Powell (6-3, 264)
14 - DB Stephen Roberts (5-11, 180)

85 - P Matthew Shiel (5-11, 195)
58 - LB Josh Shockley (5-10, 215)
48 - TE/HB Kyle Sitzler (6-1, 235)
71 - OL Braden Smith (6-6, 299)
9 - RB Roc Thomas (5-10, 193)
92 - DL Justin Thornton (6-5, 225)
35 - DB Joe Turner (6-0, 165)
58 - LS Zach Wade (5-9, 199)
13 - QB Sean White (6-0, 200)
79 - DL Andrew Williams (6-4, 251)
30 - LB Tre' Williams (6-2, 225)
37 - TE Hunter Wood (6-3, 245)


Bad News: 
Nick Marshall, and Johnathan Mincy will both be held out of their respective starting positions for the Arkansas game on August 30th. This does not mean that they won't play, they will not start their first game as Seniors. This along with some internal punishment will be the price these two young men pay for their lack of good judgment during the off-season.

Oh My:
The worst possible news came for Alex Kozan. As reported by Brandon Marcello of AL.com:
  " Auburn sophomore offensive lineman Alex Kozan injured his back and will miss the entire season, coach    Gus Malzahn confirmed Friday.
The all-SEC left guard started all 14 games last season for the Tigers."

We here at ATB wish Alex the speediest of recoveries. 

 

WAR EAGLE!
