Keith DeLong
1988
Linebacker
Lawrence, Kan.

According to his coach, Johnny Majors, "they don't come any finer as a college performer than Keith DeLong." DeLong proved as much his senior year, his second consecutive season of leading the Vols in tackles - he had 159 as a senior and 125 as a junior.

Despite the Vols finishing 5-6 in 1988, DeLong earned All-America status and was a finalist for the Butkus Award given annually to the nation's best collegiate linebacker.

Against Alabama, he earned SEC Player of the Week, collecting 19 tackles, four assists, a pass deflection and an interception in what was dubbed the second-best single-game performance in Tennessee history.
