UT Vols head football coach Butch Jones will be the featured speaker on May 7 at the 2013 Lunch for Champions at the Orange Grove Center.

The event, scheduled from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., honors those who contribute to the center, or who are "champions" for showing support for the center, a news release said.

Jones became the head football coach at UT late last year, joining the university in Knoxville from the University of Cincinnati where he served as head coach.

Previous speakers at the Orange Grove event have included Tennessee Gov. Don Sundquist; Phil Fulmer and Johnny Majors, both head football coaches with UT; and Gene Stallings of Alabama.

The luncheon is by invitation only.

Orange Grove Center, founded in 1953, is a private, nonprofit organization that serves adults and children with developmental disabilities.
