Bobb Foxx manned the backfield during Robert R. Neyland's second stint as coach of the Vols and earned All-America status his senior year of 1940.
Foxx earned three letters at Tennessee and was part of three consecutive SEC championship teams from 1938-40. The Vols were crowned national champion in 1938 and 1940.
Throughout Foxx's three-year career, he led the rushing attack that allowed the Vols to go unbeaten and untied in each regular season. The 1938 season was the year in which Tennessee held its opponents scoreless during the regular season. Foxx was voted Knoxville's greatest athlete of the first half-century by the Knoxville Journal readers.
