PLAYER SPOTLIGHT
Bruce Wilkerson
Offensive Line (1983-86)

The only Vol to wear No. 68 and be an All-SEC honoree, Bruce Wilkerson was selected to the All-SEC first team in 1985 and 1986. In 1985, Wilkerson helped lead the offensive line as the Vols won their first SEC Championship since 1969 and went on to defeat Miami (Fla.), 35-7, in the Sugar Bowl. After playing in 40 games for Tennessee, Wilkerson was selected in the second round of the 1987 NFL Draft (52nd overall) by the Los Angeles Raiders. With the Raiders, Jacksonville Jaguars and Green Bay Packers, Wilkerson played 147 games in 12 NFL seasons, while starting for the Super Bowl Champion Packers in Super Bowl XXXI.
