The helmet that former Auburn CB Chris Davis wore when he ran back a missed Alabama field goal for a touchdown has sold for $47,190 in auction.
Davis--now with the Chargers--was the man who returned the so-called 109-yard "Kick Six" that felled Alabama last autumn. Goldin Auctions founder Ken Goldin said, "This helmet from one of the most historic and notable plays in college football goes down as one of the highest priced pieces of collegiate sports memorabilia ever sold, and certainly the most valuable that has been auctioned from a player or event that occurred within the past 20 years." Goldin also said that the helmet went to an (apparently wealthy) member of the Auburn alumni. Nov 3 - 9:49 PM

In anticipation of a weekend in which it will host several elite recruits, Auburn painted the route Chris Davis took on the Jordan-Hare Stadium turf while returning Alabama's missed field goal with one second left in November.

Davis now plays for the Chargers, but his defining collegiate moment won't be forgotten anytime soon at Auburn. A picture of the field is available at the link below.

Chargers signed Auburn CB Chris Davis.

Davis (5-foot-9 7/8, 202) was a three-year starter for the Tigers, playing boundary corner where he was forced to tackle and often match up with No. 1 receivers. He also led the nation in punt return average (18.7 yards) as a senior. Davis' forty time at Auburn's Pro Day was a middling 4.55, but he displayed explosive athleticism with a 40 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-4 broad jump. Davis is capable of contributing on special teams right away, and could develop into a sub-package corner or eventual No. 2. It's a savvy pickup by cornerback-needy San Diego.

NFL.com's Chase Goodbread noted that Auburn CB Chris Davis "had some issues in coverage during the practice week" at the Senior Bowl.

Two different scouts told the writer that Davis was "holding receivers downfield too much." While Davis didn't show NFL execs much during drills, he put on a show during the game, grabbing an interception and slithering for an impressive 17-yard return. Davis was a three-year starter at Auburn.

Auburn beat writer Joel A. Erickson believes the school's CBs are "thriving" in Ellis Johnson's new 4-2-5 defensive scheme.

The team moved promising sophomore Josh Holsey to safety, with Chris Davis and Jonathon Mincy likely starting at corner. Jonathan Jones and Ryan White reportedly also put forth strong spring performances. "Those four corners, those are the guys that kept, every day, there was something on film that you're like, man, that's good stuff right there," Johnson said.
