Seivers, Teague To Enter Tennessee Sports Hall

UT

Two former Vol football standouts are part of the 2013 Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame induction class. 1970s receiver Larry Seivers and 1990s center Trey Teague are among 11 to be inducted tonight in Nashville at the Renaissance Hotel.

Former Vol Network television broadcaster Bob Bell will also be inducted, posthumously.

Larry Seivers, a University of Tennessee two-time All-America, became one of UT's greatest receiving threats during his college career and finished as the best of his era after leading Vols in pass-catching yardage all three years on the varsity squad. A native of Clinton, Seivers totaled 347 yards as a sophomore, but exploded in 1975 for 840 yards on 41 receptions. It was the first time any Tennessee receiver topped the 800-yard mark in a season, earning him All-America honors. The following year, Seivers caught 51 passes for 737 yards and was again named All-America. He was selected in 4th round of 1977 NFL Draft by Seahawks.

Trey Teague, a native of Jackson, is best known for his playing years at the University of Tennessee. While at Tennessee centering the ball to Peyton Manning, Trey capped Associated Press All-SEC honors in 1997. Trey and his offensive line mates helped Tennessee lead the nation in total offense averaging 482 yards per game in winning the 1997 SEC Championship. The Vols compiled a 40-9 career record during his playing days. In 1998 he was drafted by the Denver Broncos where he played four seasons, and was part of the 1998 Super Bowl Championship team.

Long time radio and television broadcaster Bob Bell-Bob Bell is best known for over 50 years in broadcasting, starting in the business as a 19-year old. Bell broke ground at Nashville's WLAC-AM as a popular evening sports talk show host, and is also treasured as the longtime play-by-play host for University of Tennessee Volunteer football TV game replays, along with 25 years on TV in the Middle-Tennessee area.
