TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) - Corey Fuller took over the reigns of the Godby football program after Todd Lanter stepped down back in November. The Rickards High and Florida State product and NFL veteran said he's happy to be back in Leon County, and he's looking to get the Cougars back on the right track.

Godby missed the postseason the past the years, the first time they've missed out in consecutive seasons since 2003. Back in 2014, they were playing for a State Championship, and this year, they'll be looking to return to those winning ways.

Fuller comes over from East Gadsden High School, where he led the Jaguars to a runner-up finish in Class 4A District 1 last season. His goal at Godby? To bring that energy back, and put this program back on the map.

"We must understand the history that has been at Godby," said Fuller. "Historically this is the number one football school in Leon county, if you go by state titles for public schools. I'm trying to instill that into these kids, I'm not trying to re-invent the wheel, I'm just trying to get us back on the wheel of winning ways and state titles."

Godby will take on Rickards and Wakulla in a three team jamboree on Friday. May 19th at Gene Cox Stadium.
