AUBURN – Walk-on safety Trent Fisher says he’s not thinking about playing time as a redshirt freshman, but after the impression he’s made on Auburn’s coaching staff, he may want to start.

Fisher, the son of former Tennessee Titan’s coach Jeff Fisher, has turned heads in practice.

“You're talking about a guy who you want on your football team,” said Auburn defensive coordinator Ted Roof. “He's such an intelligent football player, he's physical. He's one of those guys who is always in the right place. And the very few times when he's not, when he's corrected, he doesn't make the same mistake twice. And as a coach, you put a lot of value and you want to coach kids like that that when you make a correction, he gets it like that. He knows it and then the next play it happens to him, you see him translate that into performance. And I'm really, really pleased with him and to have him on our team.”
