AUBURN, Ala. — Along with Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn, there were only two players made available to speak with reporters following Thursday morning’s practice. Both were senior specialists in punter Steven Clark and kicker Cody Parkey. Each discussed the thrill of meeting Jason Dufner, an Auburn alumnus and passionate Tigers’ football fan who won the PGA Championship last Sunday, as well as what they have worked on during the offseason and since fall camp began.
Meanwhile, Malzahn talked about the physical nature of the team’s fall camp, and did a good job stone-walling reporters trying to find out information on defensive end Dee Ford’s injury.
The Tigers had a second practice scheduled Thursday night, but it was neither open to media members nor were players or coaches made available afterward. So the three videos below — which, in sum, run for just over 16 minutes — represent the extent of Thursday’s media availability.
