On August 8, we wish happy birthday to three former Tennessee student-athletes. Former Tennessee men's basketball star Scotty Hopson, who shined in the NBA's summer league for the Miami Heat this summer, celebrates his 24th birthday today. Former Lady Vol swimmer Brooke Watson turns 22.
Today is also the birthday of former Vol football player Bill Nowling. Nowling, who lost his life fighting for America in World War II, had his No. 32 retired in his honor in 2006.
