The 1972 Iron Bowl was played the day before David Bivins (YouTube handle Aubie1716, go figure) 8th birthday. As an early present, his father took him and his sister and a family friend to watch Auburn’s walk-through at Legion Field.
And he brought his home movie camera.
Happy Birthday, David—Happy Birthday.
Check out what his Dad got for him five years later.

Great clip! And they had no idea of the legend that was about to unfold.
Great video. And, aside from Legion Field not looking three-quarters dilapidated it is hard to believe that video is 40 years old.
(I hope there is a commemoration on the field this fall.)
We should bring back the secondary color vest look. That’s sharp.
