Tennessee football team goes to the mountaintop.


Members of the Tennessee football team were two things this past weekend - they were both Volunteers and Mountaineers. Vols head football coach Derek Dooley (wearing his legendary Tilley Airflo hat, no less), along with stregnth and conditioning coach Ron McKeffery, led a group of around forty players on a climb up 6,593 Mt. Leconte in the Great Smoky Mountains for what's being described as a "team building exercise." (I believe that's Vol's star quarterback Tyler Bray in the bottom row, second to right. But don't hold me to that).

Well with the amount of times The Pride of the Southland Marching Band plays "Rocky Top" during an average Tennessee football game, the team might as well make an effort to climb one every once in a while.
