Happy Birthday - Feb. 10

On this 10th day of February we celebrate a pair of football birthdays on Rocky Top: one belonging to a young man gearing up for his senior stint in the Orange and White and another for one of our newest Vols. 

Coming off his redshirt junior season, tight end Alex Ellis turns 22 years old today. Ellis appeared in all 13 games for UT last season, making six catches for 115 yards, including a stretch of at least one in five straight games from Oct. 19-Nov. 22. The Del Mar, Delaware, native hauled in the first touchdown grab of his career in memorable fashion when he took a 31-yard pass from holder Patrick Ashford into the end zone (and nearly into the stands) on a fake field goal versus No. 19 Missouri on Nov. 22. 

Also celebrating a birthday today is one of the newest members of Team 119: incoming freshman Micah Abernathy. A 6-0 defensive back from Atlanta, the four-star recruit will join the Vols next fall from Greater Atlanta Christian School. Playing both cornerback and tailback in high school, Abernathy was the leading rusher in Gwinnett County in 2014 with 1,526 yards and 20 rushing touchdowns, earning him 2014 Atlanta Journal-Constitution Offensive Player of the Year honors. Micah turns 18 years old today. 

Happy BIG ORANGE birthday to both Alex and Micah!
