For those who don't know who James Owens is........he was the first black man to play football for Auburn and a great Auburn man in every aspect of his life. He earned the love and respect of his teammates during times when all odds seemed to be stacked against him and still keeps in touch with Auburn players to this day. I didn't know much about him until reading a recent article about him and learned he just spent weeks at UAB hospital waiting on a heart transplant only to learn at the last minute that he doesn't meet protocol to receive a transplant.
I'm hoping someone (maybe through this site) can do a little more research and bring more attention to this guy. He's one of us and if there is a way we can help him, we should. War Eagle -Oslo
