Few plays in the history of college football – let alone Auburn’s – are as memorable as the 109-yard kick return touchdown scored by Chris Davis in the “Kick Six” game. Following the passing of Auburn announcer Rod Bramblett, who made the call for the Tigers broadcast, Davis had a touching tribute for him.
Taking to Twitter on Sunday, Davis joined the many condolence wishes in giving his own tribute to Bramblett. He stated that Bramblett would be truly and deeply missed at Auburn.
Wow… My Condolences goes out to the Bramblett family, continue to pray for guidance and understanding for those they left behind. You’ll be truly/deeply missed on the Plains Rod! #theregoesdavis #Legendary

Bramblett called the 2013 Iron Bowl alongside former Auburn quarterback Stan White. The play itself was spectacular, but their combined call for the game was truly memorable.
You can watch the play and the ensuing call below:
Auburn fans would storm the field as the Tigers clinched a spot in the SEC Championship Game, knocking off their undefeated arch-rival in the process.
The Tigers would go on to lose the final BCS National Championship Game to Florida State.
Rod Bramblett has left an incredible legacy at Auburn, and its one that the subjects of some of his greatest calls will always remember him for.
