Why I Wore the Number
Dennis Wolfe
Linebacker (1976-78)
"I wore the number 34 in college because it was the same number that I wore in high school in Gate City, VA. We had just won the State championship and I wanted to carry this number with me as I journeyed to Tennessee to play football. The coaches at Tennessee all agreed to let me wear this number in college."
