Vols to honor 15 seniors


Posted Nov 25, 2010


Tennessee wrapped up practice preparations Thursday for this weekend’s SEC showdown against Kentucky.

The workout at Haslam Field took place a little earlier in the day than usual so team members could enjoy the rest of their Thanksgiving holiday.

Saturday’s home finale marks the final Neyland Stadium appearance for 15 departing senior players. Running through the Pride of the Southland Marching Band’s T Formation for last time during pregame introductions will be the following:

Minor Bowens, defensive tackle, Memphis

Kevin Cooper, fullback, Chattanooga

Chad Cunningham, punter/placekicker, Dawsonville, Ga.

Savion Frazier, linebacker, Woodbridge, Va.

Gerald Jones, wide receiver, Oklahoma City

Daniel Lincoln, placekicker, Ocala, Fla.

Denarius Moore, wide receiver, Tatum, Texas

Nick Reveiz, linebacker, Farragut

Jarrod Shaw, offensive guard, Lafayette, La.

Luke Stocker, tight end, Berea, Ky.

Victor Thomas, defensive tackle, Olive Branch, Miss.

LaMarcus Thompson, linebacker, Lithonia, Ga.

Chris Walker, defensive end, Memphis

Gerald Williams, defensive end, Lauderdale Lakes, Fla.

Tyler Wolf, defensive back, Cookeville

“I’ve been real proud of this senior class,” head coach Derek Dooley said. “I know they’ve had a tough hoe, with a different head coach their sophomore, junior and senior years. They could have handled it differently, but they’ve done everything we’ve asked them to do and I’ve been real grateful for that.

“And they’ve been rewarded by having a chance here at the end to have a game that means something. I’m really proud of them.”

The Vols (5-6) have won three straight in November but must win again Saturday to qualify for a bowl appearance.

Kickoff is set for 12:21 p.m. Eastern time, with the Vol Network and SEC Network carrying the action.
