Dustin Colquitt

Continuing a family tradition of punting for the Vols, Dustin Colquitt became the third member of his family to do so.

Colquitt earned an All-America selection in 2003 and was a Ray Guy Award finalist for the second consecutive year. He twice earned SEC Special Teams Player of the Week accolades. Colquitt's 45.9-yard average ranked first in the SEC and fourth nationally, partly due to booming 18 punts for 50 yards or more. Accuracy was another trait, as Colquitt strategically placed 19 punts inside opponents' 20-yard line, nine of which were inside the 10 and five inside the 5.

He finished his career as Tennessee's all-time leader in punts (240), punting yards (10,216) and second in punting average (42.6).

With his start in the 2005 SBC Cotton Bowl, Colquitt broke the all-time UT records for career games played with 52 and career starts with 51.
