Former UT Head Coach Phillip Fulmer Named Keynote Speaker at Hardin County Hall of Fame Sports Banquet


HARDIN COUNTY, TN. — Former Tennessee football coach Phillip Fulmer has been named the keynote speaker at this year’s Hardin County Hall of Fame Sports banquet. The event takes place on July 27 at the Pickwick Landing State Park Inn. The event, a fundraiser for the River City Kiwanis Club, is presented by Packaging Corporation of America and has unsurprisingly drawn a lot of local interest. Source: The Jackson Sun.

Past keynote speakers for the first three years included Gene Stallings, Antone Davis and Inky Johnson and this year it is Fulmer, a popular choice with ties to Southeastern Conference football.

The Hall of Fame additionally recognizes a great team every year, and this year’s honoree is the 1944-45 Savannah Central boys’ basketball team. That team finished fourth in the state. Sponsors can attend a meet and greet with Fulmer and the inductees at 5 p.m. Dinner is at 6:30 p.m. and then Fulmer will speak. The basketball team will be honored followed and finally the Hall of Fame newcomers will be inducted.

Fulmer spoke last August at Area Relief Ministries’ Salt and Light Banquet at the Carl Perkins Civic Center. He coached the Vols from 1992 through 2008 and remains a popular figure among UT fans.

Phillip Fulmer is a TV college football analyst and the former head coach of the Tennessee Volunteers. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2012. He is in high demand as a motivational speaker and a master at getting people to work together. He is a frequent speaker at Christian events where he speaks about faith, family and a little football.
