Manning the offensive and defensive lines after World War II was Bob Dobelstein at right guard, earning All-America honors as a junior in 1944. It was also the year he served as captain of the team, the only junior in UT history to do so until the 2003 season.
Tennessee did not field a team in 1943 because of World War II. However, Dobelstein helped lead the Vols to a 7-1-1 record in 1944, completing an unbeaten regular season before losing to Southern California in the Rose Bowl. Tennessee went 8-1 the following year to set the table for an SEC title run in 1945.
