The 7-5 (4-4 SEC) No. 25 Auburn Tigers are preparing for the Chick-fil-A Bowl this coming Dec. 31. This season has seen its fair share of adversity for the Tigers, with the regular season seeing both coordinators depart from the program.
Auburn is in a fury to replace the losses of the two coaches, but there is still a good core of support that surrounds the program. Auburn will get its coaches and move on with the future, but as it stands today, there is a great group of players, coaches and support staff that make this a great SEC football team and institution.
In June of this year, I wrote about some of the VIP’s to the program that served as coaches or support roles. Few of those have changed but with the recent season some players deserve to be mentioned for their efforts and leadership. With one game left in the season for the Tigers, Auburn needs leaders to guide them into the next phase of success moving into 2012. Here is where the Tigers search for leadership will begin.
