KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee football will hit full stride this spring with Saturday’s closed practice, the first time the Vols have put on full pads.
Coach Butch Jones enters his fifth season at Tennessee looking to raise the bar yet again after back-to-back Top 25 seasons, and it starts with the competition within the team.
The quarterback battle between redshirt freshman Jarrett Guarantano and junior Quinten Dormady has the offense engaged, while young players compete for playing time at tailback and receiver.
SEC Country’s Mike Griffith and WNML’s Josh Ward discuss why it might be a good idea for the Vols to open up some of the scrimmage action this spring.
Jones has yet to say whether he’ll release statistics or video of any scrimmage action, but he has raised the level of accountability within the team.
