For Dee Ford, the No. 95 is gone and the No. 30 is in. For his senior Season, Ford will wear a new number on his back. He says with the number change, he wanted to change his psychology. He adds that it's also a way to stick out on the football field.
The No. 30 is Ford's high school number. He's worn the number 95 for the past four seasons with the Tigers. He was a leader when he wore the number in high school and he hopes to be that again heading into the 2013 season at Auburn.
Ford is the best pass-rushing end on the team but he says he still has a long way to go. He hopes the number change will help lead him in that direction. Ford isn't the only one wearing the No. 30. Punter Steven Clark also sports the number.
