1. John Garlington Marker
Inscription.
An incredible athlete whose talents typified his play and teamwork, opponents were timid when it came to attacking his side of the defensive line. Even with his size, he was a speed merchant. In the 1966 Rice game, he picked off an errant pass and returned it for a touchdown. A 1967 All-American, he was also a two-time All-SEC selection in 1966 and 1967.

All-American
