Bobby Dodd

Bobby Dodd was the centerpiece of the "Hack and Mack" backfield that featured Buddy Hackman and Gene McEver, expanding the quarterback role like never before.

It was his senior year in which "The Dodger" showed his versatility in a 13-0 win against then-Southern power Vanderbilt. Dodd finished with 14 punts for a 42-yard average, had nine carries for 39 yards, was 7-of-12 passing for 159 yards and two touchdowns and intercepted two passes. On the afternoon, Dodd gained 212 all-purpose yards, collecting all but 14 of Tennessee's team total of 226. The Vols finished 9-1, and Dodd's dominance on the gridiron earned him 1930 All-America honors.

Dodd was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1959 as a player. He was head coach at Georgia Tech from 1947-66, compiling a record of 165-64-6 and was inducted into the college hall of fame as a coach in 1993.
