Auburn football career passing leader No. 6: Dameyune Craig
- 6,026 passing yards
- 39 passing touchdowns
- 24 interceptions
Dameyune Craig was the Tigers’ play-caller during the final two successful years of the Bowden era and was an A-Day spring game MVP the two years he was Patrick Nix’s backup. His two bowl games were against Army in the Independence Bowl and Clemson in the Peach Bowl, and he was the MVP against the Black Knights in 1996.
Craig went toe-to-toe with Peyton Manning’s Tennessee Volunteers in the 1997 SEC Championship game but couldn’t come out on top. What he was able to accomplish though was breaking Auburn’s single-season passing record and was the first single-season 3,000-yard QB in the Tigers’ rich history at the position.
Craig is currently supporting the enemy as the quarterbacks coach at Texas A&M and he hasn’t been a part of AU’s coaching staff since the 2015 season. As the Tigers QB coach, Craig helped develop Nick Marshall.
Needless to say, Craig had multiple successful acts on the Plains. And never say never on another.
