Cadillac, Simmons, & Others in Auburn this Weekend

The Auburn Athletic Department announced earlier today that prior to the Auburn-LSU game tomorrow, the Verizon Autograph Tent, located in the baseball parking lot, will open at 4pm. The guests will include Fred Smith, David Housel, Alvin Bresler, Lloyd Nix, Neil Caudle, Tim Drinkard, Tommy Trott, Neal Dettmering, and Richard Shea.

Autograph enthusiasts will have another option as well, with the Sports Illustrated Heisman Tour presented by Nissan coming to town. You know, they’re the ones who put those special edition issues of Sports Illustrated in the seats at Jordan-Hare. Saturday’s will feature Cam, seen here.

The featured guests at the SI/Nissan “tent” (located in front of the Nichols Center, at the intersection of War Eagle Way and Donahue Drive from 11:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.) will be Kendall Simmons and Carnell “Cadillac” Williams. Here are the details:

  • Two-time All-SEC guard Kendall Simmons will appear from 1:00-2:30 p.m., participating in both an “SI Chalk Talk” session with Sports Illustrated writer Andrew “McLovin” Perloff from 1:00-1:30 p.m. and an autograph session from 1:30-2:30 p.m.
  • All-America running back Carnell “Cadillac” Williams will participate in an “SI Chalk Talk” session with Perloff from 3:30-4:00 p.m., followed by an autograph session from 4:00-5:00 p.m.

Admission to the tour is free, and fans are encouraged to pick up a Sports Illustrated special edition: “Running to Greatness” … compliments of Nissan.
