Editor's note: Former Vol Dave Bennett died Monday, Jan. 7, 2013, Here is a story The Commercial Appeal's Geoff Calkins wrote in 2011 when Bennett was diagnosed with ALS.
He wiped out on a snowboard. The last day of the trip. Doesn't it always work out that way?
"It was a bad fall," said Paige Bennett. "He got a concussion."
Yeah, well, it wasn't his first one of those. Dave Bennett used to collect them all the time when he played football at Tennessee. He was a safety. Which is a strange word for the position, honestly, because nothing much was safe when Bennett was involved.
"He was the headhunter," said Paige.
