Vols Jersey Countdown #44



July 18, 2012


Timber Tops
#44
PLAYER SPOTLIGHT
Bobby Majors
Tailback/Def.Back/Punter (1969-71)

Bobby Majors could do everything in a football uniform. Majors returned punts all three years of his varsity career, setting school records for career punt returns with 117 and career punt return yardage with 1,163. He also returned kickoffs his AllAmerican year with a 30.1-yard average, the third highest in the program's history. Majors completed his special teams threat by punting for the Vols in 1970 and 1971. But the defensive backfield was where Majors flourished. His set the school record with 10 interceptions in 1970.

WHY I WORE THE NUMBER
Jerry Smith
Tailback/Def.Back (1964-66)
"I wore 44 because in 1964 many great running backs had that number. Syracuse's All American Floyd Little, who we played in Gator Bowl in 1966 wore No. 44. Today, I mark all my golf balls 44 & try to only use #4 balls when I play. I got a hole-in-one on April 20 at Avalon Lettermans Golf course and it has #44 on it & is #4 Bridgestone."
