Auburn Commit Tank Bigsby from Callaway Recaps Iron Bowl Experience


The Auburn Tigers earned a wild Iron Bowl rivalry game win over Alabama 48-45 on Saturday. The fans stormed Pat Dye Field at Jordan-Hare Stadium, which cost the school $250,000 in SEC fines.

One recruit from Callaway High School, running back Tank Bigsby, got to enjoy the action from the stands and relish the moment.

“It means a lot to me to be able to watch the team (Auburn) go to war like that because it reminds me so much of my team here. Brotherhood. Don’t give up on each other,” said Bigsby. “When the team made a mistake they picked each other up. It was good to see Auburn sticking together.”

Bigsby likes what Auburn University has to offer academically and athletically. He also likes the way Head Coach Gus Malzahn leads the team.

“He’s the realest coach in the SEC. You don’t have nothing but an opportunity.”

High school football is not over yet for Bigsby. The Callaway Cavaliers (13-1) will host the Brooks County Trojans (10-3) in the GHSA Class AA State Semifinal game on Friday, December 6. A victory would earn Callaway their first trip to the State Championship in school history.

“The team has come together. As seniors we came together big this year. I hope we finish good,” said Bigsby. “Most of the seniors that are playing now played as freshman, so we always wanted a ring and hope to get one this year.”
