PHOTOS: Alabama Polytechnic Institute (Auburn) vs. Villanova College (1937)

I am still working on a long form post about the Auburn vs. Villanova game. Here are a few photos I found in the Auburn yearbook from 1937.

Photo of assistance coaches Jimmy Hitchcock, Buddy McCollum, and
Ralph Jordan during the trip to Cuba. Glomerata, Vol. 40, 1937, p. 194.
Auburn Head Coach Jack Meagher brought his full staff to Cuba. Here is a photo of assistance coaches Jimmy Hitchcock (Auburn's first All-American), Fred "Buddy" McCollum, and Ralph "Shug" Jordan (future Auburn Head Coach).

Sloppy Joe's. Glomerata, Vol. 40, 1937, p. 195.
No trip to Cuba would be complete without a trip to the famous ex-pat and tourist bar, Sloppy Joe's.
