Stan Mitchell was a three-year starter at fullback for the Vols and always known
for his size, strength and powerful running style. He arrived in Knoxville as an All-MidState
quarterback and was a consistent performer at the University of Tennessee, first
for head coach Jim McDonald in 1963 and then for Doug Dickey over his final two seasons.
It was in 1965 that Dickey coached Mitchell and the Vols to an 8-1-2 record and
No. 10 ranking in the final Associated Press poll. The AP ranking and third-place
conference finish were Tennessee’s best in both categories since the 1956 SEC
