Where Are They Now? Van Tiffin

By

If you were a kid growing up in the 1980’s like me, you'll never forget the 1985 Iron Bowl which cemented the legacy of one Van Tiffin.

Tiffin will forever be a hero in most Alabama fans minds when he kicked a 52-yard field goal to defeat the Auburn Tigers and Bo Jackson 25-23.

Tiffin still holds the school record for the longest field goal made, a 57-yarder against Texas A & M. He also held the Alabama record for most consecutive extra points made until son Leigh came along and broke his record in 2009.

After his career at Bama, Tiffin would be an undrafted free agent who played briefly at Tampa Bay and Miami. These days, Van is a Research and Development manager for Tiffin Motorhomes which was started by his father.  Visit their site at http://www.rvtechlibrary.com/redbay/tiffinstory.htm
