He finished 12th in the Heisman voting in 1976.

Bobby Majors – DB/Return Specialist (1969-71)

He holds the UT record for most punts returned, most punt return yards and most punt return touchdowns.

In 1970, Majors had 10 interceptions in a single season, a UT record that still stands today.

Al Wilson – LB (1995-98)

Al Wilson was the only All-American on the 1998 national championship team.

Wilson was drafted by the Denver Broncos and was a five-time Pro Bowler.

Peyton Manning was elected to the Hall of Fame last year.
