Richmond Flowers
1967
Wingback
Montgomery, Ala.

The versatile Richmond Flowers was one of the most exciting athletes to come to Tennessee, and left with the same title.

He garnered All-America honors his junior season of 1967 as wingback for the Vols. He only carried the ball 10 times for 24 yards, but led Tennessee with 41 receptions for 585 yards and four touchdowns.

Flowers, a world-class hurdler, missed the 1968 Olympics following a hamstring injury. Later that fall, he returned to the Vols and moved to tailback. His junior year was also his best at returning kicks with 173 total yards. Flowers finished with a career average of 21.6 yards on kickoff returns.

A stellar track star, Flowers won one NCAA title and six SEC championships.
