PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) - The 14th annual A+ Banquet took place at the Willis Bradford Branch YMCA Monday afternoon. Every year there is a prominent guest speaker, and this year it was Auburn Head Coach Gus Malzahn.
Malzahn took photos and shook hands with people before the dinner got started. In addition to the banquet there was a silent auction where all the proceeds directly affect the 14 public schools in the Autauga County District School System.
The Tigers return star quarterback Jarrett Stidham under center this season. With the departure of Kerryon Johnson and Kamryn Pettway, Auburn will have to figure out the run game between Asa Martin, JaTarvious Whitlow and Malik Miller. The Tigers defense return a large amount of talent on the defensive side of the ball, where they've seen continued success since the arrival of Defensive Coordinator Kevin Steele.
Auburn is set to open the 2018 season in Atlanta against Washington on Sep. 1.
