to Feature Football Walk-ons

Auburn, Ala.--Walk-ons have been a vital part of Auburn's football program for many years and the 2008 season is not expected to be an exception.

Beginning this week, Inside the Auburn Tigers will start a series of reports on interesting walk-ons who are expected to be a part of Coach Tommy Tuberville's team this season.

Although most walk-ons come and go without ever setting foot on the field in a college football game, there are plenty of success stories at Auburn such as senior wide receiver Rod Smith, who led the Tigers in receiving last season. The Tigers have even produced walk-ons such as Roderick Hood and Kevin Greene who became stars in college and did the same thing in the NFL.
