25 Millionth Football Fan

In 2003 the Athletics Department held a Year of the Volunteer Fan promotion in which one fan was chosen while entering the stadium for each home game and designated as Fan of the Game. Game fans (Dr. David Irvine, Keith Walls, Phyllis Smith, Carl Smith, Maxine McPeak, and Jim Clayton) received various gifts.

The 25 millionth fan selected (at Gate 1, on November 22, at 11:23 a.m.) was Patricia Gregg of South Boston, Virginia. She won a Toyota Tundra truck; a 25-inch Phillips television; two tickets to all UT athletics events for 2004; a Sea Ray 185 Sport boat; $250 gift certificates from Bread Box, Goody’s, Kroger, and World Travel; a $250 Big Orange Checking Account at First Tennessee Bank; and an opportunity to run through the T during pre-game ceremonies. She was a 1977 graduate of the College of Business.
