“I have been trying to work on being more vocal for the guys, speaking up when I need to,” Iamaleava said. “I think just being myself out there, hanging out with the guys and making sure we are getting our business done. I’ve grown more in the vocal aspect of it, just being louder for the guys is what I’ve really been trying to work on.”
 

Iamaleava has who’s put on about 35 pounds to get up to 6-foot-6 and 215, said he doesn’t approach games differently now that’s he’s considered the starter, instead of last season’s quarterback, Joe Milton. However, Milton is not the standard

Iamaleava is expect to reach the same status as former Vol quarterback, Hendon Hooker, who was one of the most prolific players in Tennessee football history and was strongly considered as a finalist for the Heisman Trophy before injuring his knee against South Carolina late in 2022. Perhaps you’ve heard of Hendon Hooker? Iamaleava isn’t trying to replicate either player – exactly.
