John Vaughn, a 6-1, 170-pound kicker from Brentwood Academy, selected the Tigers in November while still working on his record-setting high school career. He is the all-time leader in Tennessee high school history in field goals made with 39 in his career. He had just five misses in high school games.
"I talked to Coach Nall (offensive coordinator Hugh Nall) and he told me that they are looking forward to having me in this weekend," says Vaughn, who has been training for the spring soccer season when the weather permits. "Coach Lolley (cornerbacks coach Phillip Lolley) also called, too." Lolley recruits the state of Tennessee for the Tigers.
