More than 200 young alumni headed back to Rocky Top during April 16–17 for the 2010 Spring Young Alumni Weekend. The annual event, sold out for the second year in a row, treated young alums to behind-the-scenes tours of Neyland Stadium, the Lawson Athletic Center, and the renovations of Lindsey Nelson Stadium.
Before the Vols’ Orange & White spring football game, guests gathered at the Frank H. McClung Museum to eat, drink, and be merry at a pregame tailgate party. An in-depth football panel discussion before the game gave young alums a preview of the Orange & White Game and the 2010 football season. The panel comprised three well-known sports personalities and fellow young alumni:
- Drew Edwards, UT Athletics assistant director of internet communications
- James Wilhoit, UT football letterman (2003–06)
- Josh Ward, co-host of daily radio show Sports 180 on the Sports Animal
The young alumni group then took in the Orange & White Game from the east skyboxes in Neyland Stadium, watching the Orange team claim a 16–7 victory over the White squad.
The dates for the 2010 Fall Young Alumni Weekend have been set for September 3–4, so mark your calendars and make plans to be there.
