AUBURN ALL-AMERICAN
Ben Tamburello
Center
1985, 1986
A finalist for both the Outland Trophy and Lombardi Award in 1986, Ben Tamburello was a unanimous All-America selection as a senior and made The Football News All-America squad as a junior in 1985. He anchored an offensive line that led the league in rushing with a 312.5 yards per game average. An All-SEC and Academic All-SEC selection as well, Tamburello blocked for Heisman Trophy winner Bo Jackson and All-America tailback Brent Fullwood during his Auburn career. He established himself as one of the outstanding offensive linemen in the country and, perhaps, in Auburn history.
