Overview

In fabled history of university of Tennessee football, six teams – those of 1938, 1940, 1950, 1951, 1967, and 1998 – have been named number one in the nation by recognized ranking systems. A must-read for every Volunteers fan, Six Seasons Remembered celebrates those glory years through more than 130 photographs, game-by-game recaps, and the recollections of players and coaches who experienced the on-field action firsthand.

Haywood Harris and Gus Manning, who together represent more than one hundred years of following the Vols, conducted dozens of interviews and combed through countless newspaper articles and picture collections to tell this story. In these vivid pages, the reader will encounter demanding but fair-minded coaches – from the legendary Bob Neyland to Doug Dickey and Phillip Fulmer – who guided their teams to the national spotlight, as well as the many outstanding players whose running, passing, kicking, blocking, and tackling made the difference in game after game.

What emerges form Six Seasons Remembered are not only thrilling plays and tense moments but also a sense of the six teams’ exceptional dedication and, most important their camaraderie. In the end, this is a book about close friendships forged in common cause and how those friendships contribute to the Vols’ success.

Haywood Harris was sports information director and associate athletic director at the University of Tennessee until his retirement in 2000. He has also been a sportswriter for the Knoxville Journal and the Charlotte Observer. Gus Manning until his retirement in 1999, was senior athletic director at UT. Both Harris and Manning are now special assistants to the UT athletic director.

“Not only have [Harris and Manning] followed the teams, but they’ve also known the players and been there for the great moments. It’s a wonderful and evolving tradition, and they’ve been an integral part of it.”
- from the foreword by Michael E. Hamilton, UT Director of Athletics
