Fulmer To Speak At FCA Road To Victory Banquet

Friday, January 20, 2017
Former University of Tennessee and College Football Hall of Fame Coach Phillip Fulmer will be the keynote speaker at the FCA Road to Victory Banquet on Tuesday, Feb.28th at 6:30 p.m. at the Colonnade Center in Ringgold, GA.  This event is the largest annual fundraiser for the Greater Chattanooga Fellowship of Christian Athletes and supports the ministry’s efforts in schools and community sports programs throughout Southeast Tennessee.

Coach Fulmer compiled an impressive 152-52 record as UT’s head coach over his 17 year tenure leading the team to two SEC championships and the 1998 National Championship.
 His teams won ten or more games in over half of the seasons he coached-a feat which hasn’t been repeated since his final season in 2008.  He also routinely placed players in the National Football League as 98 of his players were drafted including 18 first round draft choices.

Local FCA Executive Director Jay Fowler stated, “We are thrilled to have Coach Fulmer as our speaker this year.  He is clearly one of the most successful coaches in Tennessee history and he always instilled the values of character, loyalty, hard work, and excellence which mirrors our values in FCA.”

Coach Fulmer has been a proponent for FCA for decades having attended FCA Camp in the mid-60s as an athlete at Franklin County High School and participating in FCA huddle meetings as an athlete at UT where he played football from 1968-1971.  Several of the Vol’s key team leaders throughout Fulmer’s tenure as an assistant and then head coach such as Reggie White, Jeff Hall, Will Bartholomew, and Chris Walker were heavily involved in FCA and the coach has always encouraged that.
