Craig, Fibbe in Tiger Trail class

AUBURN – Dameyune Craig, who shattered passing records as an Auburn quarterback and now coaches Auburn wide receivers, will be part of the 2013 class of Tiger Trail inductees.

Dameyune Craig now coaches Auburn wide receivers.

Craig will be joined by golfer Jimmy Green, women’s basketball great Lauretta Freeman, equestrian great and current assistant coach Lindsay Neubarth, men’s basketball great Jimmy Fibbe and baseball great Jim Barfield.

Craig still holds Auburn passing records. Fibbe led the 1960 Tigers to the first Southeastern Conference basketball championship in school history.

The 2013 inductees will officially join 108 past inductees during a reception and ceremony at Auburn Arena on April 19, the night before the A-Day game.

The Auburn Chamber of Commerce began the Tiger Trail in 1995 to honor outstanding athletes, coaches and administrators. Every year, a new class of honorees is inducted into the Tiger Trail. Each inductee is presented with an engraved granite plaque to be placed in the sidewalk of downtown Auburn among the plaques of other Auburn greats.

“Tiger Trail celebrates our great athletes, coaches and administrators and allows us to revisit Auburn history,” said Ron Anders, chairman of the Tiger Trail committee.

“We’re always thrilled to welcome new Tiger Trail inductees. Hearing the stories of Auburn’s past makes us all proud of the rich tradition we have here in Auburn,” said Lolly Steiner, president of the Auburn Chamber.

The Tiger Trail induction ceremony will kick off a weekend of A-Day events and activities. The entire community is invited to attend. Along with this year’s inductees, all past inductees will be recognized. Tickets are $25 and reservations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Call the Auburn Chamber at (334) 887-7011 for more information or to make reservations.
