Auburn to unveil Heisman statues

Auburn's A-Day festivities just got a little more exciting.

The school will unveil statues commemorating its three Heisman Trophy winners -- Pat Sullivan, Bo Jackson and Cam Newton -- in a ceremony prior to the Tigers' spring game on April 14.

The ceremony will take place on the east side of Jordan-Hare Stadium, where each statue will be permanently located. Fans will get a glimpse of the trio in person, too, as Sullivan, Jackson and Newton are scheduled to be in attendance for the event.

Sullivan won the award in 1971, Jackson in 1985 and Newton in 2010.

Newton is coming off his rookie season in the NFL with the Carolina Panthers, in which he set a rookie NFL record for 4,051 passing yards and was named the named the Offensive Rookie of the Year by The Associated Press.
