Ron Widby wasn't just a punter for the Vols' gridiron squad. He was Mr. Everything, competing and lettering in football, basketball, baseball and golf for Tennessee. In all, Widby won eight varsity letters at Tennessee and was an All-America football selection in 1966 and All-America basketball pick after leading UT to the 1967 SEC title..

Widby punted merely 38 times his senior year for 2,104 yards. His average of 43.8 yards secured his spot as the NCAA statistical champion.

He punted 142 times in his three-year career for 6,002 yards. He averaged 42.3 yards per kick to shatter the career punting record at Tennessee at the time, although the record has since been broken.
