Tennessee kicked off fall training camp Monday in preparation for its 2022 season.
Second-year Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel will have former Alabama running back Kerry Goode’s son on the Vols schedule during the 2022 season.
Roman Goode is a 2022 Tennessee scouting and personnel analyst. He served as Alabama scouting specialist from 2019-21 under head coach Nick Saban.
Kerry Goode played at Alabama from 1983 to 1987. He was named a Southeastern Conference freshman in 1983.
He suffered a knee injury against Boston College in 1984 and was selected by Tampa Bay in the 1988 NFL Draft.
Kerry Goode opened up about her son joining the Tennessee program in 2022.
“It’s great to have your son follow in your footsteps, and it’s even more great to see them achieve their dream,” Goode told Vols Wire. “He’s doing exactly what he said he wanted to do at 12. He had the good fortune to start his career in two of the best programs in the country. He loves where he is now and hopes his role will continue to grow. Only love for a child could turn me from crimson to orange. I still have flashbacks of Reggie White burying my face in Legion Field’s AstroTurf as a freshman.
