Former Auburn star Korvotney Barber tragically passed away last week when he drowned in the waters off of Panama City’s beaches.
Barber played for the Tigers from 2005-2009, having graduated prior to current head coach Tony Barbee’s arrival, but that hasn’t stopped Barbee from reaching out to the family to try and help.
Barber has two children, a son and a daughter. Barbee is hosting a charity golf tournament in September, and the proceeds from the event will be donated to a scholarship fund for Barber’s children:
Happy 2 say proceeds from my CharityGolf Event will benefit an educational fund set up 4 the children of Korvotney Barber.Call 334-844-9777
