Big Cat Visitor Enjoys Return Trip to Auburn

Running back prospect Kamryn Pettway discusses Auburn's Big Cat Weekend.

Prattville, Ala.--Hanging out with his future position coach, Tim Horton, and other members of the Auburn football coaching staff, Kamryn Pettway notes that he is glad he participated in Big Cat Weekend.

"It was fun and very exciting," says the tailback from Prattville High School. "I really enjoyed the pie-eating contest. I got second place in that. It was some type of strawberry pie. I also liked the water ballon contest we had at the end."

Now that spring practice is finished at Prattville, Pettway notes that he has no intention on slacking on his preparations for his senior season. "I am planning on working to get better this summer and help my teammates get better, too," he says.

"I am going to work on my speed and my leadership so I can bring the team along," says Pettway, who originally committed to Florida State before reconsidering and choosing the Tigers in March.

Pettway came on to the scene as a Division I prospect last season after rushing for 1,126 yards on 115 carries while adding 12 touchdowns. A big back, Pettway says he currently checks in at 230 pounds.

At Big Cat Weekend he notes that he spent time hanging out with one of Auburn's two new commitments, Jakell Mitchell from Opelika High, a player his Lions have competed against. "Jakell is a very good athlete," the running back says. "I enjoyed hanging out with him and the other recruits.

"It was good being around the coaches and seeing them outside their normal work place and just having fun with them," he adds. "I really liked the Big Cat Weekend."
