Vols Jersey Countdown #89

June 3, 2013


Player Spotlight
Larry Seivers
Wide Receiver (1974-76)

One of 15 all-time Vols to earn multiple All-American honors (1975 & 1976), Larry Seivers became one of Tennessee's first consistent receiving threats and finished as the best of his era after leading the Vols in pass catching yardage all three of his years on the squad. Seivers totaled 347 yards as a sophomore, but exploded in 1975 for 840 yards on 41 receptions. It was the first time any Tennessee receiver topped the 800-yard mark in a season, earning him All-America honors. The following year, Seivers caught 51 passes for 737 yards and was again named All-America.

Why I Wore the Number
Don Leake
Defensive End (1958-60)
"Number 89 was special to me because that was my gridiron ID for three years and I always wanted No. 89 to do his part for our team to play well. It also meant that I was a part of the team, with a great coach - Bowden Wyatt - and a wonderful group of men. They were great memories."
