Among the favorite Tennessee football players of all time for Big Orange fans in Chattanooga and elsewhere are quarterback Dewey “Swamp Rat” Warren and receiver Larry Seivers.
Mr. Warren, who came to Tennessee from Savannah, Ga., was the Vols’ first true passing quarterback and led the team to many wins from 1965-67 and an SEC championship in 1967.
Mr. Seivers, meanwhile, was known for all the great catches he made as a receiver from 1974-76 on the way to an All-American career.
The two were at a Food City grocery store in South Knoxville Friday afternoon autographing their "Classic Vol" posters that have been distributed in the Knoxville area as part of a Food City marketing campaign.
The two greats from different decades amicably greeted fans and relived the old days.
