Happy Birthday - April 6

| No TrackBacks
On April 6 we're celebrating a pair of birthdays on Rocky Top! One of the newest members of the Big Orange family, football's Kyle Oliver, is blowing out the candles today, as is former women's basketball standout Kamiko Williams!

Oliver is an incoming freshman who committed to Tennessee on National Signing Day back on Feb. 4. He is a 6-4, 226-pound tight end who will arrive in Knoxville with a three-star rating in tow. He lettered in football at Oakland High School in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and logged 102 receptions for 1,474 yards and five touchdowns in his three-year prep career. Born this day in 1997, Oliver turns 18 years old today.

Williams graduated from UT in 2013 after a four-year career on the hardwood for the Lady Vols. The guard appeared in 128 games over her four-year career, averaging 5.5 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game. During her senior year, she averaged 11.8 points and 3.5 steals per contest over Tennessee's NCAA Tournament run to the Elite Eight. Following the 2012-13 season, Williams was drafted by the WNBA's New York Liberty with the 15th overall pick. She did not play in 2014 after suffering a torn ACL. Williams is 24 years old today.

Happy birthday Kyle and Kamiko!
