Already a three-time member of the Southeastern Conference Academic Honor Roll, Jacob Warren, a former Farragut Admirals star receiver (Class of 2018) and Tennessee Vols redshirt-senior tight end, has been named to the 2022 SEC Community Service Team.
“Warren has given much of his time to better the Knoxville area, and most recently was instrumental in the planning, promotion and logistics of the Knox Area Rescue Ministries Coats for the Cold drive that provides thousands of people in need with cold-weather gear for the upcoming winter,” a UT Athletics Department press release stated. “Warren, along with his teammates, set out to get 10,000 coats for the upcoming winter.”
The former Admiral “also has bettered his community through work with the East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, the Wesley House Community Center and The Love Kitchen, where he organized various types of food, sorted donations and cleaned floors, stairs and seats in their auditorium,” the release further stated.
”He is also heavily involved with his church, regularly volunteering his time at church events and other activities.
“Warren volunteered at the Boys & Girls Club (of the Tennessee Valley) through a church program, led Bible studies and engaged with kids by playing sports and doing crafts.”
On campus and on the football field, Warren “also demonstrates leadership every day on the team and in the classroom,” the release stated.
“A second-generation Volunteer … Warren, who earned his undergraduate degree in August 2021, is on track to complete his master’s degree in agricultural leadership, education and communication this month — and has maintained a 4.0 postgraduate grade-point average throughout his time in the program.”
