Vols Jersey Countdown #84



June 8, 2012



Timber Tops
#84
PLAYER SPOTLIGHT
Austin Denney
Tight End (1963-66)

Austin Denney set the standard for today's Tennessee tight end with his versatility, speed and fight. But he wasn't always a tight end. Denney moved from fullback to the line his junior year partly because of his 6-foot-2, 227-pound body. He established the position as another offensive threat for the Vols. By the end of his senior year in 1966, the co-captain was All-SEC and All-American after catching 21 passes for 264 yards. His seven touchdowns were even more impressive as the big man led the team in scoring. Denney caught nine scores in his career to set a new school record at the time.

WHY I WORE THE NUMBER
