Vol 5-year seniors talk then and now

Follow InsideTennessee to stay in the loop with all things Team 120 related.

Five years ago when Tennessee seniors Kenny Bynum, Jason Croom and Charles Folger began their careers with Vol football, they were confident that the Orange & White football could—and would—get back to its rightful place.

Three years into their journey, and after experiencing losing records back to back in their first two years, the now-fifth year seniors finally earned their bowl rings at the TaxSlayer Bowl. They added Outback Bowl rings to the collection the following year.

Now, headed into game 11, the Vol fifth-years find themselves in close contention for the Southeastern Conference Championship Game. 

Watch the videos above and below to hear what the Vol veterans had to say about their stretch at Rocky Top and how far they've seen the Volunteer football program come along.
