A member of the 1951 National Championship team Jim Haslam, built a career as a business entrepreneur. As a player, Haslam served as captain of the 1952 Vols. He says his education in the College of Business Administration plus his experience as a football player under General Robert Neyland did much to prepare him as an entrepreneur. "You learn, you earn, and you give," he says. "Entrepreneurs learn to take risks, and the risks they take produce profits. They then have an obligation to give back." Haslam founded Pilot Corporation in 1958, which now operates hundreds of travel centers throughout North America. He previously served on the UT Board of Trustees.
