Tennessee senior offensive lineman Zach Fulton will play in the East-West Shrine game on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 4 p.m. in St.Petersburg, Fla.

The game will be broadcast live on the NFL Network.

Fulton is the first Vol from the 2013 senior class to be invited to a postseason all-star game and will be the 43rd Vol in history to take part in the game, the first since Tauren Poole did so in 2012.

It hit Daniel Hood from nowhere. Like a chop block or a clip.

With the burly defensive lineman’s Tennessee playing career officially over following the Volunteers’ 27-14 victory over Kentucky on Saturday night, he felt his eyes fill with tears as he walked off UK’s Commonwealth Stadium turf.

“I’ve never been an emotional guy,” he said later after wiping away a second round of the salty stuff while meeting with the media.

For all his success on the recruiting trail, Tennessee coach Butch Jones desperately needs to win one more major battle—the one for elite in-state receiver Josh Malone.

The 6’2″, 190-pound prospect from Gallatin is expected to choose between the Volunteers and Clemson on Wednesday. Malone is just the type of immediate-impact player that UT must keep home to return to prominence.
