A unanimous All-America and All-SEC selection in 1986, Brent Fullwood rushed for 1,391 yards on 167 carries and scored ten touchdowns as a senior. His senior-season total was first in the SEC and the second-best single season total in Auburn history. His 8.3 yards per carry average led the nation in 1986 and placed him sixth on the Heisman Trophy ballot. Also during his senior year, Fullwood received the Wally Butts Memorial Award given to the best offensive back in the Southeast. He ended his career with 2,789 yards, fourth on the Auburn all-time rushing list. He went on to a short NFL career with the Green Bay Packers and the Cleveland Browns.
