Bill Johnson
1957
Guard
Sparta

Bill Johnson helped usher in the Bowden Wyatt coaching era with three consecutive winning seasons and an SEC championship.

After a 6-3-1 season, Johnson was Wyatt's starting guard in 1956 and 1957. The lineman pushed Tennessee to the national spotlight his junior season as the Vols finished with an undefeated regular season and won the SEC as the nation's second-ranked team.

But the next year, Johnson earned national notoriety himself when he was earned All-America status. On the defensive side, Johnson helped hold Tennessee opponents to 109 pass attempts for just 501 yards on the season, both school records.
