Days to Auburn Kickoff: 8 Cassanova McKinzy

Only 8 short days until Auburn football!

Today we honor a notable number 8; Cassanova McKinzy.

The Birmingham, Alabama native went to Woodlawn High School before arriving on Auburn’s campus in the fall of 2013.

In 2013, McKinzy led the team in tackles (75), becoming the first underclassman to do so since 2008. McKinzy had a team-high 10 tackles in the SEC Championship Game vs. Missouri. In 2014, McKinzy played in all 13 games and had 91 tackles for the season. 2015 was the final season at Auburn for McKinzy. The 6-foot-3-inch linebacker finished his Auburn career with 263 tackles and named to 3rd team All-SEC by SEC coaches.

McKinzy currently plays in the NFL for the Los Angeles Rams.
