Hank Lauricella
1951
Halfback
Harahan, La.

Hank Lauricella was "Mr. Everything" during one of the most prominent stretches in UT football history. While the 1948 recruits have been called the best freshman class in Vol history, Lauricella proved as much three years later.

In the 1951 Cotton Bowl against Texas, Lauricella set up Tennessee's first score with a 75-yard run - perhaps the most memorable run in school history.

The next season he was named All-SEC and All-America, averaging a school-record 7.9 yards per carry in leading the Vols to a 10-0 regular season. Tennessee was named national champion prior to its Sugar Bowl appearance, and Lauricella finished second in the Heisman Trophy voting.
