This week at Track ‘Em Tigers we have been taking nominations for our own Auburn Tigers Football Hall of Fame—class of 2018. We have had some great comments put forth in support of some outstanding nominations. But that’s not surprising since there have been hundreds of Tiger greats that have played on the Plains.
This year’s class will consist of 10 Tigers. Three staff selections have been made from the names provided by our TET members for Tigers who played before 1977. Caleb “Tex” Warrington, Joe Childress, and Mike “Captain Crunch” Kolen. To get our other seven selections we prepared a ballot/poll based on the names provided during the nomination process. The poll will close Sunday.
The names receiving the highest number of votes will be included in this year’s class of Track ‘Em Tigers Football Hall of Fame. So vote for the players you would like to see go into this year’s HOF class. Next week, we will publish a tribute article to the winners. A very brief bio of the candidates appears at the bottom of the ballot.
Thank you for your help and …
