Career highlights and awards

Adolphus Henry "Buck" Hatcher (May ll, 1896 – November 7, 1987) was a college football player.

University of Tennessee[edit]

Hatcher was a prominent tackle for the Tennessee Volunteers football teams of the University of Tennessee from 1915 to 1916 and 1919 to 1920 . He once kicked a 52-yard field goal against Sewanee.[1][2] At Tennessee, he was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon.


Tennessee upset Vanderbilt 10 to 6 in 1916. Hatcher played at quarterback; his also punting contributed significantly, outpunting Tom Zerfoss by 15 yards consistently.[3] The New York Herald ranked Hatcher as the season's premier punter.[4] Tennessee finished undefeated and ranked with Georgia Tech as Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA) co-champions.


A steady rain hindered the 1919 Tennessee–Vanderbilt contest which ended as a 3 to 3 tie. Josh Cody scored on a 30-yard drop kick, and Hatcher later made a 25-yard drop kick.[5]


Hatcher was captain[6] and selected All-Southern in 1920.[7]
