Tennessee track & field VFL Brian Brophy (1990-92) was among eight individuals with ties to UT to be inducted into the Greater Knoxville Sports Hall of Fame during the 34th annual dinner and induction ceremony Tuesday night at the Knoxville Convention Center.
Brophy is a three-time letterwinner for the Vols and one of the most accomplished decathletes in program history. He won the 1990 SEC Championship in the decathlon, posting a total of 7,537 points and earned All-America honors as the national runner-up at the NCAA Championships. He earned All-America honors again in 1991 after taking third at the NCAA meet and played a big role in helping the Vols win the 1991 national title. As a senior in 1992, Brophy scored 8,276 points to win the NCAA Championship in the decathlon and set a then-UT record.
