Bleacher Report Features 'Ultimate Warrior' Jacob Gilliam

The Bleacher Report has a fantastic detailed story on the heroic return of offensive lineman Jacob Gilliam just weeks after suffering a torn ACL:

Tennessee Football: OL Jacob Gilliam Is College Football's Ultimate Warrior

The story of Tennessee offensive lineman Jacob Gilliam could best be described as one of improbability. But after everything he's endured, that word isn't in his vocabulary.

A collegiate career that began as a 250-pound invited walk-on, featured playing for three offensive line coaches (as well as two head coaches) and culminated with him earning a starting left tackle spot as a fifth-year senior on scholarship leaves little room for incredulity.

But playing on a torn anterior cruciate ligament just 49 days after suffering the injury pushes the boundaries of belief.

Yet, that's just what Gilliam did on Oct. 18 at No. 3 Ole Miss. Then in last week's game against UT's biggest rival, Alabama, Gilliam started, anchoring his 6'4", 297-pound body on that detached knee ligament, play after play.
