It’s football time in Tennessee.
Those were the words spoken by Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel on Sunday before the Vols officially took the field on Monday morning for the first practice of fall camp. The rain stayed away from Knoxville and provided a crisp and cool backdrop for the Vols’ first practice out on the field.
As expected, the Vols have several key players from the 2021 team returning. Quarterback Hendon Hooker, wide receiver Cedric Tillman, and defensive lineman Byron Young, to name a few. However, in addition, many Tennessee newcomers made their debut on the field. The Vols brought in a number of players through the 2022 recruiting class and through the transfer portal and were seen on the field today.
