Jim Weatherford
1968
Defensive Back
Dalton, Ga.

It was the year between Tennessee's two SEC Championships under head coach Doug Dickey and it was the first season played on Neyland Stadium's artificial turf that Jim Weatherford earned All-America honors.

In the Vols' 10-9 win over Alabama in 1968, Weatherford blocked the Crimson Tide's final field goal attempt in the final minutes before a national ABC audience and capacity crowd at Neyland Stadium. Including Weatherford, six of his defensive teammates at UT earned All-America honors during their collegiate careers.

Weatherford helped the Tennessee defense post two shutouts and hold three other opponents to just a touchdown as the Vols went 8-2-1 on the year. The two-year starter was part of Tennessee's dominant defensive era that lasted into the next decade.
