Planning to work their way around the state of Alabama in the Montgomery, Birmingham and Huntsville areas between Monday and Thursday, Auburn's football coaches will be visiting prospects at high schools throughout the day before joining up with a new addition to the prowl this year.
Shown is the Tiger Prowl bus that is driving around the Mobile area on Monday promoting Auburn football. It will be on tour throughout the state this week.
Along with the football coaches, both the men's and women's basketball coaching staffs will also take part in a fundraising function each night of the Prowl at various locations throughout the state. On Monday Tiger Prowl will be at Lipscomb Field in Mobile starting at 6 p.m. CDT. The functions will also be in Montgomery on Tuesday, Birmingham on Wednesday and Huntsville on Thursday. All four events will run from 6-8 p.m.
Tuesday's Tiger Prowl fundraiser will be located outside the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Montgomery at the Exchange Patio next to Tallapoosa Street while Wednesday's location in Birmingham is to be determined. The Huntsville Tiger Prowl on Thursday will be at the Madison Commons Lot on Hughes Road in Madison.
Those are just part of the festivities for the Auburn coaching staff as their main focus is on visiting schools around the state and becoming more familiar with coaching staffs while also targeting players to keep an eye on for 2011 and beyond.

Last season Auburn drew attention throughout the college football world when seven coaches toured the state in limos while also targeting some of the state's top prospects. One of the early stops was at Ariton High where Craig Sanders was at the time. He eventually signed with Auburn as did players such as Jake Holland at Pelham and Jawara White at Charles Henderson in Troy, other stops on the Tiger Prowl. The coaching staff is hoping this time around will have similar results.

On Monday the coaching staff will visit Spanish Fort High School where recent commitment Reese Dismukes is a junior center. There are also plans to visit Daphne, Vigor, Davidson and Leflore before the day is done. Visits could also take place at UMS-Wright, St Paul's and McGill-Toolen if time permits.
The rest of the week will be handled in much the same fashion as Auburn's coaching staff is expected to visit a variety of schools during the day before joining forces for the fundraisers each night.
