Rare photos of David Langner taken during the game that made him an Auburn legend

The immortal David Langer died Saturday morning. You know who he was. War Eagle. Punt, Bama, Punt.

Here are some rare photos of No. 28 as he turned the punts into points on Dec. 2, 1972. And intercepted two passes. And returned an un-blocked punt for 58 yards.
