Your three words, my little story
Butch’s words: football, Tennessee & Vols (true story)
Butch has lived most of his life between Maryland and TENNESSEE and is an avid FOOTBALL fan. He roots for the Washington Redskins and his college team is the Tennessee Volunteers.
He has always been interested Davey Crockett, since Crockett was born in eastern Tennessee in 1786.
Crockett led a band of twelve, known as the ‘Tennessee Mounted Volunteers’ and later joined up with Sam Houston. During the battle of the Alamo, Houston led an Army of Tennessee Volunteers fighting for the independence of Texas.
Crockett died at the Alamo on March 6th 1836 at the age of forty nine. Because of him, his men and the rest of Houston’s army, Tennessee became known as the ‘Volunteer State’. Tennessee has always answered the call. That’s why their college team is called the Tennessee VOLS, short for volunteers.
