Phillip Fulmer Speaks In Winchester

Former University of Tennessee football coach Phillip Fulmer was inducted into the Hall of Fame Wednesday.  However, he was not celebrating in Nashville, Knoxville, or Memphis.  Instead, Fulmer returned to where he played high school football…Franklin County High School. Phillip Fulmer spoke to the Franklin County Christian Athletes Association annual banquet. “It’s a little bit ironic, because I’m back home where everything started,” he said. “There are so many people here that taught me and coached me and helped me get going on this path. It’s neat to come back and relive some of those memories.”
He honored long time Franklin County head coach Bill Henley, Jim Cunningham, and Tippy Tipps for influencing his future and guiding him.
