AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn Heisman Trophy winners Cam Newton, Bo Jackson and Pat Sullivan will have statues in their honor.

Athletic director Jay Jacobs said Wednesday in a letter to
Auburn supporters the 1,900-pound bronze statues will be unveiled
on the east side of Jordan-Hare Stadium this academic year. They'll
be 1½ times lifesize.

Jacobs says Montana sculptor Ken Bjorge began working on
Sullivan and Jackson statues last spring and Newton was added after
winning the 2010 Heisman.

Jackson won the Heisman in 1985, Sullivan in 1971.

Auburn will also display a bust of John Heisman, the trophy's
namesake who coached at Auburn from 1895-99.

Florida recently unveiled statues of Heisman winners Tim Tebow,
Danny Wuerffel and Steve Spurrier.
