Tennessee's football team had a visitor recently.

Marine Capt. Greg Johnson talked to the Vols shortly after his tour in Iraq.

Johnson played at Franklin Road Academy, went on to Tennessee where he was Peyton Manning's roommate and saw extensive duty on special teams.

After graduation, Johnson signed up for a four-year hitch in the Marines, and later extended another year in order to fight with the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit.

Johnson was a perfect candidate to speak to the Vols.

It is no secret the Vols lacked leadership and self-discipline during last year's 8-5 debacle. There were players who put themselves ahead of the team.
