Tennessee Football All-Time Phil Fulmer Team Wide Receivers
Peerless Price (1995-1998)
Joey Kent (1993-1996)
Peerless Price was one of those receivers that appeared to be a bit of a late bloomer but also became better every single season he played for Tennessee football. He had six catches in his freshman year but that ballooned to 32 in his sophomore season, then 48 and finally, 61 receptions in his final year with the Volunteers.
It was that final season that made him one of the best to ever play for Phil Fulmer. Those catches as well as 920 yards and 10 TDs were impressive but the final game of his Tennessee football career was the one that stood out. He had four receptions for a total of 199 yards and the deciding 79-yard receiving touchdown in the game that gave Fulmer his first national title.
Joey Kent didn’t have that kind of resume, but he did put up some eye-popping numbers from 1993 to 1996, helping to build the road to Fulmer’s championship. By the time that Joey Kent left, he closed his college career as Tennessee football’s all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdown catches. Price and Kent were teammates for two years and certainly helped Peyton Manning get off to the Volunteers career he had.
