Camp 76 to honor Harry Galbreath

Friends and former Tennessee football teammates of the late Harry Galbreath are staging a one-day instructional camp in his honor.

Camp 76 will be held June 11 at the Johnny Long Training Academy in West Knoxville. The staff will include former UT and NFL players Al Wilson and Tim McGee among others.

Proceeds will go to fund a scholarship in Galbreath’s name from his high school in Clarksville.

Galbreath, an All-SEC offensive lineman at UT in the 1980s, died suddenly last summer.

The camp is open to ages 6 through seniors in high school and will be divided into age groups. It runs from 7:30 a.m. until noon.

The $50 fee includes a T-shirt and lunch. Forms are available at the Johnny Long Training Academy at 2598 Willow Point Way off Hardin Valley Road.

I was a kid when I met him at a McDonald's with my dad...he was a giant and as nice a guy as I ever met that ever wore the Orange.

I met Harry a couple of years ago at an alumni tailgate party before a game. Must have talked to him for 15-20 minutes about everything from baseball to blocking for Dan Marion with the Dolphins. A truly great guy who will always be missed!

Marino is who he meant for those in Loma Linda.

Always enjoy those stories about former Vols who kept their egos in check.
