Tennessee Football: Vols DE Jonathan Kongbo Guarantees Wins Over Florida, Alabama


Tennessee Football defensive tackle Jonathan Kongbo said the Volunteers will beat every 2016 opponent, including the Florida Gators and Alabama Crimson Tide.

The confidence is beginning to soar for the Tennessee Vols players. Whether or not that is good news will be determined this Fall.

But newcomer Jonathan Kongbo is not holding anything back. A five-star junior college defensive lineman who transferred from Arizona Western Community College, Kongbo told Rocky Top Insider that the Vols will win every game they play this year.

Kongbo specifically mentioned Florida and Alabama, as he was responding to trash talk from Gators cornerback Jalen Tabor, who said last week the Gators would beat the Vols a 12th straight time this Fall and even took a shot at Peyton Manning for never beating Florida.

Here is an excerpt of what he said in the article. You can see the full interview by clicking here.

"“Well I mean, I just kind of laughed at it because I know we’re going to beat Florida. I know we’re going to beat Alabama. We’re going to beat all those teams. So I’ll say right now, we’re going to beat every team we play next year. I just really laughed at it, especially the comments that Jalen made. It was funny. We’ll see what Jalen Hurd does to him though.”"

The comments that Jalen Hurd made were in response to Tabor, which he tweeted out.
