Chip Kell set the standard for blocking guards at the University of Tennessee by becoming a two-time first team all-America selection in 1969 and 1970 (unanimous selection in 1970), a two-time Jacobs Trophy winner as the SEC’s best blocker, a three-time all-SEC selection and named Tennessee’s Outstanding Lineman in 1970.
Chip Kell was a versatile performer who played both center and guard for the Volunteers. Not only did the multi-dimensional Kell play two positions, but he also became a SEC shot put champion. This two-sport athlete developed into a powerful blocker with the speed and strength to explode off the ball. Born in Atlanta, Kell came to Tennessee after playing high school ball in Decatur, Georgia, at Avondale High School.
Drafted by the San Diego Chargers in 1971, Kell went on to play two years in the Canadian Football League with Edmonton before beginning a long career in coaching and education. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2006.
