Giving Back, Witten Holds 12th Annual Camp



An annual tradition made its way to Elizabethton's Dave Rider Field on Saturday afternoon as hometown hero Jason Witten hosted his 12th annual Score Foundation Football Camp.

This year the free camp saw more than 1600 kids pre-registered for the two-session day.

"It's awesome to come back and it's another opportunity to give back," said Witten. "It's awesome to see how this camp has grown. It's special. I can think back of many years sitting on this field and a lot of great memories, not just as a player, but growing up as a ballboy and everything that took place before I started player here. The kids love the camp and its always humbling to see how many from this area come and how many travel in for it."

Yahoo Sports: Maggitt Among Top Poised For Comeback

Tennessee v South Carolina
Yahoo Sports is breaking down the top five defensive players poised for a comeback in 2014. No. 3 on the list is the Vols' Curt Maggitt. 

Read what Yahoo had to say about Maggitt including this comment from Coach Butch Jones: Doc Five: Top five defensive players poised for a comeback in 2014 - No. 3 - Curt Maggitt  

"It makes a big difference (to have him back). He's our leader. He brings versatility to our defense in terms of being able to put him in a 3-point stance and rush the passer, or put him in the second level of our defense at the linebacker position. He's very explosive, so to be able to get him back on the field is a big benefit for us."

Since then he has hit four homers and raised his average to .194 with the four home runs and seven RBIs. Duffy hit .302 with Corpus Christi before being recalled in late May.

Dobbs Named One Of 14 Smartest College Football Players

NFL.com has named its 14 smartest college football players for 2014. The Vols' sophomore quarterback Joshua Dobbs has earned a spot on the list: 

  • 14 for '14: Smartest players in college football

  • Here's what it says about Dobbs:

    Spend a few minutes with Dobbs and you can understand why he makes this list. He started four games under center for the Vols last year as a true freshman, but still managed to keep his grades up in the aerospace engineering major he's picked. We're sure Alabama's defense is just as tough as honors calculus class.
