Albany--Auburn fans cheered back in January when running backs Carnell Williams and Ronnie Brown both announced they were coming back for their senior seasons. The two running backs have combined for more than 43-hundred yards in three seasons and are looking to add to that total this year.
For Carnell Williams and Ronnie Brown to have big years, they are going to need the guys up front to open the holes. The right side of the Auburn offensive line this season will be from south Georgia.
Offensive line coach Hugh Nall says that he has moved former Westover star Troy Reddick from guard to right tackle and that senior Danny Lindsey from Douglas will move from center back to the offensive guard where he played two years ago. Nall believes another move that will help his linemen is that we will be on the same side of the football all season.
Nall said, "I am not going to flip my offensive line anymore. I have done that the last two years. I don't really like doing that. I think it is tough on those kids playing right side one play and left side the next play."
Auburn announcing today that their first two Southeastern Conference games will be on television. The Tigers game at Mississippi State on September 11th is at 12:30 kick on JP Sports and WALB and the LSU game the following week will be on CBS and start at 3:30 eastern time. Auburn opens the season at home on September 4th against Louisiana Monroe.
