All of a sudden, Austin Troxell is one of the most veteran members of Auburn’s offensive line room.

A redshirt junior, Troxell has been limited by injuries to just 13 game appearances in his career, all coming in the 2018 season. But after the departure of four of five starters from last season’s group, he’s being looked to by Gus Malzahn for experience.

Since Auburn’s 2020 fall camp began Monday, teammates have seen what Troxell has improved on while he was been unable to play last season — he’s confident at practice with a “chip on his shoulder,” and his fundamentals are top notch.

“He has something to prove — that he can be a starter here at Auburn,” junior offensive lineman Brodarious Hamm said of Troxell on Thurdsay. “He’s a technician. He’s always coming to practice and doing the little things right.”
