Congratulations! Newton, Fairley - AP All-Americans

Cam Newton gets the lowdown from Nick Fairley
As reported on, two of our Tigers - Cam Newton and Nick Fairley - have been named to the AP All-American Team! 

Auburn is one of five teams that have two players named to the AP team. 

The AP noted:
  • Newton, in his first season with the Tigers after transferring from junior college, became the first quarterback in Southeastern Conference history to reach 2,000 yards passing and 1,000 yards rushing in the same season. He also accounted for 49 touchdowns (28 passing, 20 rushing and one receiving).
  • The 295-pound Fairley led Auburn with 10½ sacks and 21 tackles for loss, blossoming into one of the best defensive tackles into the country after starting just two games in 2009.
Congratulations to these two outstanding players!

War Eagle!
