Jeff Miller Announcing the release of “Teammates for Life”

DeSoto, TexasAnd the November 22, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ – Jeff Miller announces his return to publishing with the release of Teammates for Life: The Inspiring Story of Auburn University An Incredible, Unforgettable and Absolutely Unforgettable Football Team, Amazin’ Team of 1972, Then and Now” (Archway Publishing). Auburn University He underestimated the 1972 Auburn Tigers football team who teamed up incredibly well to upset the undefeated Alabama Crimson Tide on two blocked punts and have been assisting each other ever since.

The Tigers were projected to drop to the bottom half of the Southeastern Conference standings after losing their quarterback Pat Sullivan1971 Heisman Trophy winner and All-American Terry Beasley. Going into their opening game, they only had five offensive games. However, Auburn proved its critics wrong all year, capping off an incredible season with a stunning upset of Alabama, returns two blocked kicks for touchdowns in the final minutes of the game. Instead of finishing sixth in the SEC, the team finished fifth—in the nation!

The Amazons, as they were nicknamed, won as a result of the bonds they formed during grueling winter training and two-a-day August practices under extreme conditions. Alabama the sun. Fifty years later, the Amazons still find strength in each other, and take on new challenges as team members for life.

“This book will appeal to anyone who enjoys a good underdog story. But the book goes on years later to show just how devoted the 1972 Tigers were to each other long after they played their last game of football,” says Miller. I hope Auburn football fans and sports fans in general – and even Alabama Fans can appreciate – the story of the 1972 Tigers, of what they achieved against the odds on the football field back then, what they meant to each other, and what they’ve done for each other since.
