It’s difficult to explain to younger generations what Pat Sullivan meant not only to the Auburn Family but to the game in general. The Auburn legend passed away Sunday morning, he was 69 years old. He was not only a legend, he was a college football icon. He may be the last of the gentlemen coaches that used to roam the sideline. Men like his mentor, legendary Coach Ralph Shug Jordan.
Pat was a three-sport letterman at John Carroll CatholicHigh School in Birmingham – playing basketball, baseball, and football. Although he was a natural baseball player he went on to football stardom at Auburn.
