Jack Thornton
Defensive Tackle
1965
As the leader of Auburn's 1964 defense which was ranked first in the nation, Jack Thornton was a first-team All-SEC defensive tackle. He started at offensive and defensive tackle on the 1963 Orange Bowl team. In 1965, he repeated as All-SEC and was selected All-American by Newspaper Enterprises Association. Thornton also led Auburn in interceptions that year, one of which led to the tying touchdown against Tennessee in a 13-13 deadlock.
