KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Much of Tennessee's tennis success has been built off foreign-born players, and it was star Aussies Adam Walton and Scott Jones at the top of the lineup this year. But the heart and soul of the Vols was Brentwood native Andrew Rogers.

Rogers is the model student-athlete, and we honor him with this Curtain Call for his work on and off the court.

Rogers helped the Vols get off to a 14-2 start this season as they rose to no. 12 in the nation. He went 10-3 in singles, playing at the no. 5 and no. 6 positions in the lineup. He was also part of a doubles team that was ranked in the top 50 in the country.

He was stellar off the court as well. Rogers named to the SEC Community Service Team after volunteering at an elementary school, encouraging kids to live active lives. He also traveled to Rwanda with VoLeader Academy to build a school and connect the people through sports.

And Rogers isn't done yet. He was just a junior, so he'll be back serving aces on the court, and in the community, next year.
