Former Yellow Jacket leads way for Auburn's running attack

GAINESVILLE - Life in the trenches.

Not the most glamorous of positions on a football team. Defensive linemen at least get recognition when
they make a quarterback sack, or come up with a crucial tackle on a fourth-and-inches, first-down
saving play.

But what of the offensive lineman? While speeding halfbacks and quarterbacks "make the big play" it
usually is the offensive tackle or guard who opened the play in the first place. Unfortunately, these
hulking hole openers usually get to see the play from their backsides on ground level after knocking
down or containing their defensive assignment.





















Former Leesburg Yellow Jacket standout Jim Skuthan, a member of the Auburn War Eagles football
team for the past four years, has seen life from the trenches as the starting right offensive guard for the
past two years.

This past Saturday, Skuthan had the honor of being chosen co-captain for Auburn in its clash with the
University of Florida Gators.

Jim said before the game, "We're playing Florida, so that means you don't have to get me up for the
game. I have to listen to Gator fans all year, and time would hush their remarks. Every time someone
back home hears I play at Auburn they say, Why didn't you go to Florida? I'm just glad I'm here.
