Vols Jersey Countdown #60

July 2, 2013

Player Spotlight
Bill Pearman
Tackle (1947, 49-51)
Bill Pearman was one of three All America selections from Tennessee's 1951 consensus national championship season. The two-year starter's position at right defensive tackle helped the Vols hold their opponents to 116 points on the season. Tennessee's defense pitched five shutouts in 10 games during the undefeated regular season and helped the Vols hold a No. 1 ranking for six weeks of the year heading into the Sugar Bowl. Tennessee was a combined 33-9-1 with Pearman in uniform, 28 of those wins coming in the final three years of his career.

Why I Wore the Number
Carson Anderson
Offensive Line (2008-12)
"60 is important to me because it represents how long it takes to play a football game. The number reminds to go hard every minute of every game."

Why I Wore the Number
Robbie Franklin
Offensive Line (1964-66)
"My number was special to me especially now because that is how I remember my gmail account. Thank you and Go Big Orange!"
