Auburn's first coach of national renown, Heisman led Auburn from 1895-1899. On November 7, 1896, Heisman's Tigers defeated Georgia Tech 45-0 in the first game ever played on the Auburn campus. His 1897 teaam was undefeated. Always an innovator, Heisman pioneered the center snap and the forward pass, first known as "Heisman's forward pass." In 1971, Auburn University became the first school where Heisman coached to have a Heisman Trophy winner. Heisman was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1954.
