Optional Musical Accompaniment

Phil Steele named two Vanderbilt players to his preseason All-SEC team: Anfernee Orji as a second-team linebacker and Wesley Schelling as a fourth-team long snapper.

Enrique Bradfield Jr. and Carter Holton got an invite to the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team training camp. The Tennessean has a guide to where the Vandy Boys are playing this summer.
