Flying drones not the best replacement
Football season can’t get here soon enough.
It’s a sentiment many football fans share, and they are joined by Auburn co-offensive coordinator and receivers coach Kodi Burns. The former Fort Smith Northside standout recently had the chance to kill some time by watching ESPN, but he wasn’t a fan of what the network was airing.
“Drone racing is currently on ESPN… Hurry up football season! #WDE!!!” Burns tweeted.
The network was airing one of several races from the Drone Racing League. While not widely popular, the sport has begun to develop a small following. The league may have gained a few more fans after directly replying to Burns’ tweet.
“If we were 8-5 last season we’d be rushing to get back too,” the league tweeted in response.
“Punching way above its weight class, the DRL’s Twitter account let loose on Burns and reminded him of the Tigers’ underwhelming 2016 season,” William McFadden wrote for SaturdayDownSouth.com. “Burns might have good reason to want the season to arrive sooner rather than later, though, as Auburn figures to have one of the best teams in the SEC on paper and should have more success this fall.
“Another positive for when the football season finally arrives? There will be actual games to focus on, not just Twitter burns from the Drone Racing League.”

Burns, a Fort Smith native who was also previously an assistant coach at Arkansas State, said ESPN’s coverage of the Drone Racing League is a reason to look forward to beginning of football season.
