    Happy Birthday - March 21

    It's the second day of spring and we've got a trio of Big Orange football birthdays to celebrate! Today we're sending 'happy birthday' wishes to sophomore wideout Josh Malone, sophomore offensive lineman Jashon Robertson, and junior offensive lineman Dylan Wiesman!

    A native of Gallatin, Tennessee, Malone caught 23 passes for 231 yards and a touchdown during his freshman season on Rocky Top in 2014. He snagged his first career touchdown against No. 4 Alabama on a nine-yard pass from Joshua Dobbs. He recorded five catches for a season-high 75 yards at No. 3 Ole Miss in mid-October.


    Robertson started all 13 games during his true freshman season, becoming the first Vol since current Miami Dolphin Ja'Wuan James 
    to start on the offensive line in his first collegiate game. He was also the only member of UT's offensive line to start all 13 games at the same position (right guard). 


    Wiesman is known as a versatile lineman who can play any position on the offensive line. He appeared in all 13 games in 2014 for UT, getting two starts along the way. A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Wiesman served primarily as Mack Crowder's backup at center and earned his first collegiate start in place of Crowder in the Nov. 22 home-finale against Missouri. 

    Dylan  Wiesman

    Happy birthday, Josh, Jashon, and Dylan!
