TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) - The Godby Cougar football team has four State Championships to their name. They were State Runners-up in 2008 and 2014, but since that last title game appearance, the Cougars haven't even made the postseason.
That's something head coach Corey Fuller wants to change. Fuller took over the Godby program this spring, and has made it pretty clear he won't settle for losing anymore. To get back on top, the Cougars are working hard this summer, noting that winning in the fall all comes back to their work ethic in these summer months.
"We don't have no complainers. I got some bad ways I gotta break, but the complaining part, we don't get down with that," he said. "They've responded very well. I think that they're committed. I believe when you buy in, and people buy things, you can go back to the store and trade it back in when you get ready. But when you commit to something, like these kids have, they're committed. That's a good ingredient to turn a loser into a winner. How committed are they to winning?"
Getting back to winning is a driving force for this squad, as they are hungry to get back to the postseason and win a few ball games.
"You gotta have a great summer," he said of how summer conditioning translates to success. "If you don't have your body in shape, you have no chance of winning in football. We don't have any days off. Days off are for people that are dead. We work. We go Monday through whenever. Whenever coach says be here, they're here. That's what I love about them."
Godby opens the regular season at Chiles on August 25th.
