For more than 100 years, Tennessee football has turned up the turf across these United States. Players and coaches from all walks of life have contributed to the legacy of the Volunteers.
For the record, the Volunteer tag came not from football but from a rag-tag group of Tennesseans who willingly followed Davy Crockett to the Alamo where they knew they would face certain death, but they went because their countrymen also faced the same demise and would help out of patriotic pride.
It is that same spirit that the university adopted and searches for from their players and coaches to this day. In the slides to come, you will see some familiar faces and some are alien ones.
If grandpa is awake, ask him to tell you what he remembers about those you know not. If you don't have that history book handy, trust me, these guys were beloved.
