It's still sinking in for Leonard Little, but the former Tennessee football great appears at ease with his recent decision to retire from football and begin a new part of his life.

Sounds like a quality guy to have around your program.  Best of luck Vols!

`Upside Is Tremendous'
Little liked what he saw from practice and expects things to improve for the program in the very near future.

"They are getting recruits now for the positions they want them to play and the upside is tremendous here," he said. "This year they are going to get better, and they are going to have a good team in the next couple of years to come."

Dooley always appreciates when former Vols take the time to visit practice or come to games. He says it helps pass along Tennessee's tradition to those wearing the pads today.

"Leonard has his picture on the wall," Dooley said. "He's an All-American. He was a part one of those banners in there and that's what we're playing for.

"He's a guy who lived it and breathed it. I think he lost about four games in his career and then went on to be a great NFL player. The more guys that come back, I love it when they get in front of the team."

Now that retirement from professional football is real, Little's immediate career plans are still up in the air. He knows one path he wants to take, whether it be full-time or in a volunteer capacity.

"I want to work with kids in some sort of way," he said. "I can help young people get through certain situations and certain things they go through in life. I went through a lot of things when I was younger, so I think I can help kids in that aspect."
