The best part of the day for 6-year-old Anderson Thrower was petting baby chickens with 6-foot-6, 310-pound Auburn offensive lineman Avery Young.
His 9-year-old sister, Avery Thrower, couldn’t get past the smell of the other football players immediately after practice Thursday — “It was good, it was just smelly and sweaty,” she said.
