In the eyes of Auburn fans, Terry Beasley will always be the fresh-faced kid with thick red hair swept across his brow. “Sullivan to Beasley” still has a magical ring to it even 40-plus years after the most beloved pass-catch tandem graced The Plains. Video is scarce, but the still shots of No. 88 in the mesh-net jersey – whether sitting beside Pat Sullivan on the sidelines or stretching skyward to caress one of Sullivan’s perfect spirals – are iconic reminders of sweet times.
