Frank Emanuel
1965
Linebacker
Newport News, Va.

Continuing the tradition of stout linebackers, Frank Emanuel fulfilled the role valiantly for two years under young coach Doug Dickey, earning All-America status his senior year in 1965.

Emanuel started his junior and senior seasons, Dickey's first two years commanding the Vols in which he eliminated the two-way player. That's when Emanuel flourished as the Vols went 8-1-2 and beat Tulsa in the Bluebonnet Bowl.

Led by Emanuel, Tennessee's defense allowed only 98 points in 1965. The Vols haven't held their opponents to fewer points in a season since. In eight of the 11 games, Emanuel and the Vols held their opponent to a touchdown or less.

Emanuel was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame in 2004.
