Impressive that there were nine baseball players on that list. Not so impressive that there only two Lady Vol basketball players, five football players, and NO men's basketball players.

Come on, people! Being a champion in the classroom will make you a champion in life, no matter how your sports career turns out. You are here. Many of you are the first in your families to have a scholarship to attend college. Few of you have family connections to smooth your way in society. This is your chance to be somebody who matters in the world--DON'T BLOW IT!
