Corey Fuller Just Motivated His High School Team With A Fiery Speech In The Pouring Down Rain


Dayummmm. That’s all there really is to say.

“21 years I stayed in these projects. This is where I learned to play football at. Ya’ll keep walking around like ya’ll got something. I come from nothing. I keep giving ya’ll my soul every day but y’all wont listen to me. Nobody is gonna give us nothing. We have to take what we want. You want to go to college? You want to get out of your situation? WORK HARD! That’s why we came through here. My master bedroom is bigger than this whole house. I come from nothing. I don’t want to hear any more complaining out of none of y’all. All we’re gonna do is WORK. Do you understand me? (Yes, sir) Get on the bus.”

Tall - After playing four games in a 7-on-7 tournament at Florida High Friday morning, the East Gadsden Jaguars piled on their yellow school bus for the return trip to Havana. Or so the team thought. The Jaguars made a detour while in Tallahassee to the Orange Avenue Apartments, where their coach, former Florida State star and 10-year NFL veteran Corey Fuller, was raised.

Frustrated at times by his team, a demonstrative and animated Fuller, 45, encouraged players to work hard and not make excuses. The group stood in front of the apartment where Fuller was raised. A driving rain pelted Fuller and players; thunder boomed from beyond.

I’m ready to run through a wall for Corey Fuller. That was awesome. Any time you can take lazy kids and show them how it could be, it wakes them up. It’s like Scared Straight, one of the best shows ever. I could watch videos of big black men yelling at scared people for the rest of time. It’s without a doubt the best way to get through to anyone. We should hire Corey Fuller for the new office just to keep everyone motivated and in line. KFC gets us sued again? Fuller Time. Smitty takes another day off when everyone else works? Fuller time. It’s just what we need.
