John Henderson
2000, 2001
Tackle
Nashville

John Henderson earned back-to-back All-America honors his junior and senior seasons by exploding off the defensive line. The statistics were impressive for the 6-foot-7, 290-pound giant, and so were his honors.

In 2000 - the year Tennessee set a school record for fewest rushing yards allowed with 817 - he won the Outland Trophy, was a Bronko Nagurski Trophy finalist and received SEC Defensive Player of the Year honors.

Henderson's 12 sacks during the 2000 campaign ranked third on Tennessee's single-season list. He also caused four fumbles and recovered three. He was an Outland finalist and a Lombardi Award semifinalist in 2001 despite a lingering ankle injury as he helped lead the Vols to the SEC Eastern Division title.
