AUBURN ALL-AMERICAN
Jackie Burkett
Center
1958, 1959
Though he played college baseball and basketball, Jackie Burkett will be remembered as one of Auburn's greatest centers. Burkett and Zeke Smith combined to give Auburn some of its greatest line play in history. He was named top center and linebacker by SEC coaches in 1958. Selected All-American in 1958 and 1959, Burkett captained the 1959 team and called defensive signals during his three-year varsity career.
