New, rare video of Auburn, Shug Jordan at Legion Field before the 1972 Iron Bowl

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.
