Corey Fuller is a former NFL defensive back who now coaches football at East Gadsden High School in Havana, Florida.
And he's apparently an incredible motivator.
According to Jim Henry of the Tallahassee Democrat (via USA Today), Fuller took his team to visit his former home in Tallahassee, Florida, on the way back from a seven-on-seven tournament.
His players gathered around as he spoke to them about the importance of hard work and modesty. Per Henry, he said:
I lived in there 21 years. Twenty-one years I stayed in these projects. It's where I learned how to play football at. You all keep walking around like you've got something. I come from nothing. I keep giving you all my soul every day and you all won't listen. Nobody is not going to give us nothing. We've got to take what we want. You want to go to college? You want to get out of your situation? Work hard. That is why we came through here. My master bedroom is bigger than this whole house. I come from nothing. I don't want to hear no more complaining from none of you all. All we gon' do is work. Do you understand me?
That'll get you fired up.
