Wednesday's Tennessee Football Briefing (1/15/14)

Former University of Tennessee coach Phil Fulmer speaks during The Leaf-Chronicle/Legends Bank All-Area Football Banquet Tuesday night at First Baptist Church.
On Tuesday, former Vols head coach Phillip Fulmer paid tribute to the late Harry Galbreath on Tuesday night in Clarksville, Tenn. He spoke about the lineman and the impact he made on the Vols and Fulmer himself. 

"Harry was one of my very, very favorite players that I coached in my 37-year career, and it was a tragedy that we lost him too young," said Phillip Fulmer. "But I do know that he lived his life to the fullest and he was such a wonderful, good person."

Before he died unexpectedly in 2010 at the age of 45, Galbreath had returned to Tennessee in 2007 to serve as a strength and conditioning assistant on Fulmer's staff for two seasons. Galbreath's mother, Delores Nicholson, said her son stayed close to Fulmer until his death, always making sure to call him every Thanksgiving and Christmas.
