With his wife, Gloria, to talk about Auburn's James Owens Courage Award, which will be given for the first time at the Louisiana-Monroe game. We'll have more on that this week. Coach Chizik will be here for his normal Tuesday press conference soon.

Jay Jacobs on James Owens...
***Owens is named the first winner of the James Owens Courage Award.
***Played on the 1972 Amazins team
***Award will be for current or former football player that has faced adversity with courage.
Glad to see Mr Owens getting a well-deserved honor.
On a side note, it'll be interesting to see if Chizik talks about any depth chart and/or position changes today.
James Owens just finished speaking to media. He spoke of the fear he experienced when he first arrived at Auburn as its first African American football player. He spoke of his struggles after football and being called to the ministry. Coach Pat Dye came in at the beginning of his talk and gave him a big hug afterwards.
