Today On Rocky Top: Justin Worley Serving As Counselor At Manning Camp And More


From the Times Free Press

Justin Worley will continue trying to lock down the job as Tennessee’s starting quarterback three weeks from now when the Volunteers begin preseason training camp.

For the rest of this week, though, the junior’s focus will be elsewhere.

Worley is among a handful of college and NFL quarterbacks serving on the 120-man staff at the Manning Passing Academy, the annual July camp conducted by the Manning family, including current NFL quarterbacks Peyton and Eli Manning, for high school skill-position players at Nicholls State University in Louisiana.


From Rocky Top Talk

A 12-year-old kid rushed off the football field behind Flintville Junior High School to anxiously ask his father about the game that mattered most that day. Nevermind that we’d just won our Pee Wee football game. That didn’t matter. I was more concerned about the score of the 13th-ranked Vols’ game against No. 5 Notre Dame in South Bend. We’d taped the game, but I just couldn’t wait to watch it. I had to know the score right then and there.

Not even Pat Summitt can beat Alzheimer’s. That’s what you tell yourself, however much that reality hurts.

You watched the vacant stares throughout the 2011-12 women’s college basketballseason, her last as head coach of the Tennessee Lady Vols. You heard the sad stories of her forgetfulness, stories whispered with great regret, as if no one ever wanted to criticize publicly the greatest coach her sport has ever seen.


From Go Vols Xtra

Patrick Lawson is an old hand with a new title, director of softball operations for Tennessee’s Lady Vols.

Lawson has worked at UT for five years in event management, including softball, soccer and golf.

He replaces former Lady Vols standout Lindsay Schutzler Bell, who left after one year in the position in order to join her husband in Texas.
