Today we bring back a feature that ran years ago here at Track’em Tigers. We call it Nostalgia Friday and it’s a look back at old games and athletes that have left their mark on the Auburn football program. If you have any old games you’d like for us to spotlight, let me know. You really can’t re-start a segment without kicking it off with the best.
I’m of course, talking about Bo Jackson. Although Bo remains a big personality both at Auburn and nationally, many younger people have never seen a lot of his game footage. The video above shows most of his great runs both at Auburn and while playing for the Oakland Raiders. Some of the footage is a little grainy, but it’s worth the watch.
It’s hard to put into words how special he was at running back. He’s not just the greatest player to ever suit up at Auburn, he may be the greatest of all-time. Judge for yourself.
