Heath Shuler’s son to continue family legacy at Tennessee

The son of former Tennessee quarterback Heath Shuler announced Sunday that he’s going to continue the family legacy with the Volunteers.

Navy Shuler, also a quarterback, is transferring to Tennessee from Appalachian State. While he spent two seasons with the Appalachian State program, he didn’t record any statistics, and because of COVID-related rules, he’ll have four years of eligibility remaining.

“I would like to thank all of the coaches from Power 5 to Group of 5 programs that have offered me. It’s been very humbling,” he posted to Twitter.

“With that being said, I will be transferring to the University of Tennessee, and will be the fifth Shuler in my family to wear the power T. I would like to thank Coach (Josh) Heupel and his staff for giving me this opportunity: Rocky Top has always been my home. It’s time to return!”

Shuler was a three-star recruit in the Class of 2020 and played in high school at Christ School in Arden, N.C.

His father played for Tennessee from 1991-93 and was second to Florida State’s Charlie Ward in Heisman Trophy balloting in 1993.

Heath Shuler threw for 4,089 yards and 36 touchdowns, with 12 interceptions, in his college career and set a number of school passing records that Peyton Manning went on to break.

Washington selected Shuler No. 3 overall in the 1994 NFL draft, but he lasted just three seasons with the team and played a fourth with the New Orleans Saints. In 22 career NFL starts, he had an 8-14 record.

Shuler went on to serve three terms in the U.S. House of Representatives, representing North Carolina.
