Former Vols’ First Game Memories
With the opening game just a couple days away, I decided to reach out to former players and ask them for their first game memories as a Vol. Here are the responses I got:
Following camp there was a sense of relief that not only was it “football time in Tennessee,” but also that I’d made it through camp. From that point on it was time to prepare to go into battle that week. And whether you’re 12 or 22, on Friday and Saturday there were always the first-game butterflies all the way up until that first piece of contact you receive from the opposing team.
