WATCH: Tennessee Drops New Hendon Hooker Highlight Mixtape

    by -

    There are officially 100 days until Tennessee Football kicks off the 2022-2023 season. To build up some off-season hype, Tennessee’s social media team dropped a brand new highlight mixtape for quarterback Hendon Hooker.

    Hooker is heading into his second season with Tennessee. The Greensboro, North Carolina native transferred to Tennessee before the 2021 season and quickly became a household name in Knoxville. Hooker led Tennessee to a 7-6 record with an appearance in the Music City Bowl last December.

    By the end of the 2021 season, while paired up with Josh Heupel and his staff, Hooker beat out Georgia’s Stetson Bennett and Alabama’s Bryce Young to become the SEC’s most efficient quarterback (182.02 QBR). Hooker also completed 68.2 percent of his passes for 2,945 yards, 31 touchdowns, and just three interceptions.

    Below is the latest hype video for Hendon Hooker from Tennessee Athletics.
