Condredge Holloway, former Vols quarterback and current UT associate athletics director, broke racial barriers when he was named the first African-American quarterback in the Southeastern Conference in 1971. “The Color Orange: The Condredge Holloway Story,” a documentary chronicling Holloway’s story, will premiere Sunday, Feb. 20, at 8 p.m. on ESPN. The documentary was produced and narrated by country music star and lifelong UT fan, Kenny Chesney.
Holloway is a member of UT’s African-American Hall of Fame, a group that will be recognized throughout 2011 as the university celebrates 50 years of African-American achievement on campus.
