Auburn Tiger Ready for Opener

Future Auburn Tiger Stanton Truitt continues to remain humble despite his amount of success on the football field. The Peach state standout amassed more than 2,400 yards of total offense and 19 touchdowns during his junior season.

Stanton Truitt decided to end the recruiting process before his senior season started and chose the Auburn Tigers. The Monroe (Ga.) two-way standout is a dangerous weapon and will line up all over the field on Friday night's. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound speedster has offers from Auburn, Arkansas, California, Florida, Missouri, South Carolina and Tennessee to name a few.

Truitt can play wide receiver or corner back for the Tigers but should get his first crack on the offensive side of the ball.

"I'm very blessed all around," Stanton Truitt said. "On the field and off the field as well, I know I am held to high expectations this year because of all the recruiting talk and I plan on leading my team to the first state championship."

Truitt understands it will be difficult with so many young players but realizes if they work together they can accomplish their goals.

"We have to get younger guys to step up this year and older guys to never take plays off if we want to be successful," Truitt said.

What was the best and worst part about going through the recruiting process for Truitt?

" Best part about recruiting is seeing how hard work plays off and also the attention. The worst part is saying no and also finding the right school."
