🔼 It’s in the (Eu)Genes. Auburn senior linebacker Eugene Asante was exposed to what it takes to play football at the highest level at a young age. Asante’s brother, Larry, played defensive back at Nebraska and later for five seasons in the NFL. 

“I grew up with those memories of watching him play at Nebraska,” Eugene said. “So as a young kid, I remember saying, ‘Man, I'm going to be there one day too.’” 

Asante began his college career at the University of North Carolina, where he saw some playing time as an underclassman. He appeared in all 13 games in his freshman season and 12 games in his sophomore year. As a junior, Asante finally made the starting lineup a couple of times and tallied 23 tackles, but the linebacker decided it was time for a change. When he started making visits to decide on a new home, Auburn stuck out immediately. 

Read On the Plains With Eugene Asante for more on his dedication, which dates back to high school, the role his faith plays and his goals for his final Auburn season.

🔼 Gaging a Great Situation. Courtney Gage, who has spent the previous 16 years working in the Auburn Athletics Student-Athlete Support Services department, including the last six years as an Associate Athletic Director, has been promoted to Senior Associate Athletic Director.

Gage has worked directly with the men's basketball and football programs, serving and assisting with their academic support services. She has also overseen new student orientation and worked as an academic counselor with the equestrian, men's golf, soccer, and track and field teams.
