9. Bobby Dodd (1928-30)
Dodd may be best known for his days as the head coach at Georgia Tech, but he was quite the athlete during his time at Tennessee. He was versatile in every sense of the word. Dodd played football, basketball and baseball for the school. When he was on the gridiron, not only did he play QB, but he played as a running back and punted as well. The Vols held a 27-1-2 record in games that Dodd started.
He was inducted into the University of Tennessee Hall of Fame in 1959.
