COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – The panels containing the names of more than 58,000 American men and women who lost their lives serving in the Vietnam War not just weighed heavy on the arms of players and coaches from the Tennessee Tech football team on Wednesday morning, but heavy on their hearts and minds.
The team helped install The Wall That Heals this week, a traveling 375-foot replica of the Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Wall, stationed at the Putnam County Sports Complex (497 Whiteaker Springs Road, Cookeville) through Sunday, with the event’s closing ceremonies scheduled for 1 p.m. that day.

The Murfreesboro native’s efforts off the gridiron certainly haven’t gone unnoticed in his own field of study as Akers was recently named the winner of the College of Education’s Go-Getter Award.
