Vols Jersey Countdown #96



May 27, 2012


Timber Tops
#96
PLAYER SPOTLIGHT
KEVIN MAYS
Defensive Line (1991-92)

No Vol has ever worn No. 96 during an All-SEC season. A future All-SEC selection as an offensive guard in 1994, Kevin Mays began his career as a defensive tackle and wore No. 96 in the 1991 and 1992 season, Mays made nine tackles on the defensive side of the ball before moving over to the offense and switching to No. 67 in 1993. The Kingston, Tenn., native was also an SEC Academic Honor Roll selection as a senior.

WHY I WORE THE NUMBER
Chad Cunningham
Punter (2008-10)
"I wore No. 9 in high school and when it came time to pick a number from what was available, I wanted something with . ., so it was 96. It might be an odd number for a punter, but now-a-days, lots of college punters wear high 90s numbers.

"One of the funniest things about wearing 96 and being a punter was being placed between all the defensive linemen in the locker room. But, now 96 is special in different ways to me, it is part of me and being a Tennessee Vol."
