July 4th is a time for fireworks, picnics, and vacations. And, traditionally, it’s a time for the staff here at Track‘Em Tigers to take our annual week’s vacation. 

The 4th of July also signals an important time in the world of college football. There isn’t much football news in the middle of the summer. However, after this week that changes, especially with the start of SEC Media Days.

We appreciate all of you who make TET a part of your daily lives and wish you a happy and restful holiday. We will be back with our regular postings following July 4th week.

In the interim, we will be preparing a list of names for our readers to consider for the 2019 class of Track‘Em Tigers Auburn Football Hall of Fame. 

Nominations from our readers are welcomed. So if  you would like to nominate some players or coaches, please look over the list of rules for the selection process below. TET’s Hall now includes seventy-one former Auburn  players and coaches. You can find a list of those names at the end of this article.

The rules for the selection process are:

(1) Nominate only one person from each of the following positions: QB, RB, FB, WR, TE, OL, DL, LB, DB, ST, and Coach. 
(2) We have two classifications for nominations. One representing players from the last 40 years and one representing Tigers who played before 1979.
(3) To be eligible, players and/or inactive coaches should have been out of college for five years. Eight names will go into the 2019 class and may come from any period in Auburn history.
(4) Although it would be good for you to have seen the nominee play or coach (at least on television), we recognize that in some cases that would not be possible.

Tell us in the comment section why you think a player or coach is deserving of the nomination or just list his name. If your guy has already been nominated, you can still nominate himan action that will simply add to the nominee’s weight for placement on the final ballot.

Towards the end of this week, we will publish a ballot/poll to decide which nominees will make up the 2019 class of TET’s Auburn Football Hall of Fame.

On behalf of the staff at Track‘Em Tigers, thank you in advance for your help. War Eagle, and once again, we wish you all a safe and enjoyable 4h of July.

    Nominate: Randy Campbell – QB, Cooper Wallace -TE, Tyrone Goodson – WR, Bob Harris – DB, Quentin Riggins – LB, Rodney Garner – DL, Stacey Danley,– RB, Wayne Gandy – OT, John Vaughn – PK

  2. WDE7385 WDE7385 says:

    Yeah, I know it is supposed to be players and coaches only. Plus, it hasn’t been long enough, etc. etc. Maybe we should consider adding a category?
    I am already missing Rod Bramblett and wanted to nominate him to Auburn Football Hall of Fame.

    • sullivan013 sullivan013 says:

      I second that nomination, and add Jim Fyffe as a second person in the non-player category.

      I can still hear “Touchdown Auburn!” in my head every time the team scores.

  3. AtkinsonTiger AtkinsonTiger says:

    I would agree that Rod Bramblett should have a special exemption and be added this year.
    Also, I would like to nominate Linebacker Quentin Riggins. He was All-SEC and Captain of the 1989 “first ever” Iron Bowl played in Jordan-Hare.

  4. hello2196 says:

    I nominate DB Carlos Rogers and RB Ben Tate and oh yea, would love to see the voice of Auburn Football Rod Bramblett in there too.

  5. jbellison56 says:

    I think Nick Marshall should be considered since he led Auburn to an SEC Championship and took the Tigers to within 13 seconds of a national championship. Others I would like to put forth are:
    Dee Ford – LB,
    Cameron Artis-Payne – RB,
    Karlos Dansby – LB,
    John Vaugh PK,
    Walter Reeves – TE,
    Wayne Gandy – OL,
    Bret Eddins – D L
