Gen. Robert Neyland: Hunt County's most accomplished person?


Carol Taylor, the chairman of the Hunt County Historical Commission, discusses the biography of Greenville native Robert Neyland, the long-time head football coach at the University of Tennessee and a brigadier general in World War II.  Neyland won four national championships at Tennessee, and the 100,000-seat football stadium there was designed by him and is named for him. Alongside Audie Murphy, is Robert Neyland Hunt County's most accomplished person?
