Auburn coach starts scholarship fund for Korvotney Barber's children

The recent death-by-drowning of Korvotney Barber stunned and saddened the Auburn community. The former Tigers standout was just 26 when he succumbed to dangerous conditions on Panama City's shores on July 21. 

In wake of the tragedy, Auburn coach Tony Barbee is trying to make the most good he can. And he's using Barber's name to start a scholarship for the former player's children.

Barbee, via his Twitter account, announced the news Monday.

The Tony Barbee M.A.D.E. Golf Tournament this year will be the third of its kind and will take place Sept. 27. The cost per player is reportedly $250.
