Bobby Majors
1971
Defensive Back
Sewanee

Bobby Majors could do everything in a football uniform.

The youngest of UT's "First Familty of Football," Majors returned punts all three years of his varsity career, holding the school records for career punt returns with 117 and career punt return yardage with 1,163.

He also returned kickoffs, averaging 30.1-yards per return in 1971-- third highest in UT history. Majors completed his special teams threat by punting for the Vols in 1970 and 1971, compiling a career average of 37.3.

But the defensive backfield was where Majors flourished. His set the single-season school record with 10 interceptions in 1970, the same year the Vols led the NCAA with 36 picks. He ranks sixth on the career pass interceptions list with 13.
