The Auburn football team reported for fall practice on August 3, 2010. Their first fall practice will commence at 07:30 PM on August 4, 2010.

Auburn launched their new Gameday Site that will give fans up to the minute information on parking and other game day concerns. It is a good idea for all fans to bookmark this site and take a look before each trip to the plains.

There were some interesting observations coming out of summer seven-on-seven drills. Onterio McCalebb is up to 171 lbs. and should be more of a threat in 2010. Freshman Trovon Reed has turned heads from day one. His speed and route running has been repeatedly praised.


Compliments of Andy Bitter we have a great video interview on the offense. The quote of the day was from quarterback Cameron Newton about freshman Trovon Reed, "Since the first day, Trovon has come in and pretty much kicked the door down."




Freshman running back Michael Dyer has been an attentive student of the offense since arriving on campus, according to several sources. Freshman Ladarius Phillips has been pointed out for some impressive displays of athleticism himself.




Senior Right Guard Byron Isom was heard saying that 361 lbs. freshman Eric Mack looked to be able to play this year. He said that Mack runs pretty well for his size.



Terrell Zachery talked about how Cameron Newton had turned the speed on some of his passes down and improved his accuracy.




The hard work put in during the summer dead period shows on many of these players. There is a lot of added muscle on many players including sophomore Onterio McCalebb.
