PLAYER SPOTLIGHT
Heath Shuler
Quarterback (1991-93)

The 1993 Heisman Trophy runner-up, Heath Shuler was selected first team All-SEC as well as being named SEC Player of the Year and finalist for the Davy O'Brien and Maxwell Awards.

Shuler, who led the league in passing in 1993, had a string of 17 games throwing a TD pass. He passed for more than 4,000 career yards and set numerous Tennessee passing records. He added a school record 11 rushing TDs in 1992, a mark still atop the Tennessee charts for a quarterback.

A first-round draft choice in 1994, Shuler played for the NFL's Washington Redskins (1994-96) and the New Orleans Saints (1997-98). In 2006 he was elected to represent 11th District in North Carolina as a congressman in the U.S. House of Representatives.

WHY I WORE THE NUMBER
Frank Davis
Blocking Back (1959)
"The number 21 was special to me because it was my high school number. My favorite thing about the number is that many great Tennessee blocking backs (I was not one of them) wore numbers in the 20s, namely Stockson Adkins and Jim Cartwright."
