Ivan Charles Frederickson is a native of Hollywood, Florida. Coach Jordan called "Tucker" the most complete football player he ever coached. He was one of Auburn's great two-way players. He was a fullback who won the coveted Jacobs Blocking Trophy as the SEC's best blocker in 1964. The same year he was a consensus All- American at defensive safety. He was the first player selected in the 1965 National Football League draft by the New York Giants. Tragically, knee surgery cut his career short. He now calls North Palm Beach, Florida home. In December, 1994 he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
