Kell is one of only four players in Tennessee history to earn consensus First Team All-America honors twice (unanimous in 1970). Anchoring a dominant offensive line for three seasons, he helped guide the Vols to a 28-5-1 record and three bowl game appearances. In 1970, Kell bolstered a line that helped UT rush for the most single-season yards since 1951 and pass for the most yards in school history.
A three-time First Team All-Conference selection, Kell twice won the Jacobs Blocking Trophy as the SECís most outstanding lineman. Named the teamís top lineman, he was twice named to the All-South Football Team and led the Vols to the 1969 SEC title and an 11-1 record in 1970, capped by a victory in the Sugar Bowl.
