Pope went to college to coach football at Brainerd High School in Chattanooga, then coached defensive end at Western Kentucky, where the Hill Toppers won the 1970 OVC championship. He was named Tennessee State's player of the year and has received numerous awards and accolades at the regional and local levels. Sporting News hailed him as the state's best running back in the 1950s and 1960s, as well as a member of two state championship teams.

I admit that I am more of a basketball fan, but I know how important the football team is to the fans. I just didn't know that my love of helping injured and sick animals would one day become an internet sensation among Tennessee's fan base.
