Saturday's edition of the Iron Bowl will feature standout quarterbacks A.J. McCarron for No. 2 Alabama and Barrett Trotter for No. 24 Auburn. But this won't be the first time these two signal-callers have faced off with great implications.
In 2007, McCarron led St. Paul's Episcopal (Mobile, Ala.) against Briarwood Christian (Briarwood, Ala.) in the Class 5A state championship. Despite a late rally by Briarwood, McCarron's team prevailed with a 14-13 victory, capping an undefeated campaign. McCarron threw for 112 yards while Trotter looked solid in defeat with 173 total yards and a touchdown.
