PLAYER SPOTLIGHT
Mark Hovanic

Mark Hovanic was a force from the defensive tackle position in his four years with the Vols. Hovanic posted 19 career sacks with Tennessee to rank in the top 10 all-time. He was named All-SEC First-Team as a senior in 1987, as he posted five sacks and four TFLs. In his career, Hovanic made 87 total tackles with 14 coming behind the line of scrimmage.

WHY I WORE THE NUMBER
James Woody
Middle Guard (1968)
"I wore number 59 as a middle guard because I low man on the pole. I switched to number 87 the next year when I moved to defensive end and linebacker. My favorite thing about wearing the numbers 59 and 87 was that my parents could find me on the field."
