HAVANA, Fl. (WTXL) - Corey Fuller is no stranger to football in Gadsden County, serving as head coach at East Gadsden High in two separate stints. Fuller is back for the third time, as in January, he was named head coach at Gadsden County High School.
Fuller and the Jaguars are hard at work this spring. When they first started workouts in January, he said they had less than twenty kids. Day one of spring ball on Monday? Over 60. A lot of Gadsden County kids who transferred to Leon County schools are back in their home county, which is Fuller wants, to create that sense of community pride, and now it's just about working to get better.
"I see a lot of talent out there, but there's a lot of fundamentals we must work on. We're going back to ground zero. It's truly about us this spring and trying to identify who are the players and who's not. Who's just here just to be here. That's what this spring is about for me and this coaching staff and I think we'll do a good job with the kids we have coming every day."
Gadsden County part of that nine team spring football classic on May 18th. They'll play Chiles at 11 am, then Leon at 1.
