Sophomore tailback Ronnie Brown continues to impress in workouts this summer. In the best shape of his life heading into the 2002 season, Brown should be a solid backup to starting tailback Carnell Williams.
Incoming freshman wide receiver Montae Pitts has impressed his new teammates all summer with his work ethic and talent on the field. Here he tucks the ball away after catching a pass from quarterback Jason Campbell.
The wide receiver position will be wide open this fall and one of the players looking to make his mark is incoming freshman Ben Obomanu from Selma. Here he shows his good hands by hauling in a fingertip pass from Campbell.
Tight end Cooper Wallace was the biggest surprise performer to most in spring practice. Solidifying the position well enough that the coaches could move Jay Ratliff to defensive end, the 252-pound Wallace gives the Tigers three solid tight ends heading into the fall.
Perhaps no player has done more for himself this summer than wide receiver Courtney Taylor. A quarterback by trade at tiny Carrolton High, Taylor has spent the summer in Auburn learning how to be a wide receiver. The work has obviously paid off as the 6-3 speedster has improved dramatically since arriving on the campus and could challenge for playing time this fall.
