Offensive linemen hardly ever get noticed, especially when their quarterback hogs all of the spotlight.
Tennessee’s offensive line decided to embrace that reality, creating the Twitter account Life in the Shadows. The account is dedicated to showing all the times the linemen are completely ignored while their quarterback, Josh Dobbs, gets hounded by Vols fans for selfies.
The linemen went on SportsCenter on Saturday to talk about the struggles of never getting into the spotlight.
It’s not hard for the linemen to find moments to add to their collection of selfies.
“We just take (Dobbs) outside of the house, basically,” RT Brett Kendrick said.
Dobbs couldn’t even let them have their moment on SportsCenter. At the end of the interview, he walked into the shot and stole the show. Well, it’s not like his linemen aren’t used to it.
Here are just a few of the moments fans have bypassed the linemen for their star quarterback:
