The Tennessee football team held its first full-scale scrimmage of the spring

on Saturday at Neyland Stadium in weather more like early November than

early April. Rookie running back Dominiq Stevenson led the way with nine

carries for 79 yards, while Travis Stephens had 19 carries for 60 yards

and Travis Henry added 11 carries for 32 yards. Stephens had a rushing TD,

an extra-effort run from a yard out on which the sophomore tailback hit

the pile, bounced off and outlegged everybody to the left corner. Jamal

Lewis had a 38-yard run in limited action.

"Overall, I was generally pleased, but there are a million things

to work on," UT head coach Phil Fulmer said. "We have some young

running backs who are trying hard. Travis Stephens, Travis Henry and Dominiq

Stevenson all showed signs of being good, tough backs."

Tee Martin completed seven of 11 passes for 109 yards and one score,

a nine-yard pass to sophomore wideout David Martin in the left corner. The

two Martins also hooked up on a 44-yard toss down the right sideline. David

Martin caught five passes for 89 yards.

Defensively, the Vols were led in tackles by Chris Ramseur, who was in

on eight hits. Tim Sewell was in on six hits. Austin Kemp, Mikki Allen and

Steve Johnson were in on four hits each. Steve Johnson also returned a blocked

punt for a touchdown. Justin Satterfield had a sack, as did Eric Westmoreland,

Matt Goodin, Corey Terry and Russell McGlothlin. Deangelo Lloyd knocked

down a pass. Fred White caused and recovered a fumble on the same play and

Derrick Edmonds recovered a fumble.

Jeff Hall kicked five field goals in as many attempts, with a long of

35 yards, and Robert Loudermilk hit three of four FGs, also with a long

of 35. David Leaverton punted five times for a 38.9-yard average.
