Guard Ted Daffer locked down the middle of the defensive line during a dominant time for Tennessee football. He was the only two-time All-America from the 1950 or 1951 squads.
Fellow All-Americas Bud Sherrod, Bill Pearman and Doug Atkins joined Daffer, a three-year starter for the Vols at guard, on the defense. They helped Tennessee to an 11-1 record and a national championship from one poll in 1950, losing only the second game of the season to Mississippi State.
Daffer returned the following season to help the squad become consensus national champions in 1951, going undefeated in the regular season before losing in the Sugar Bowl.
