NASHVILLE – Titans Football Outreach Coordinator Josh Corey has been recognized as the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association's September recipient of the Distinguished Service Award.
Corey, who joined the Titans in 2014, coordinates all of the team's football-related outreach efforts while working in the organization's community relations department.
The Titans recently hosted the Waverly Central High School vs White House game at Nissan Stadium. Waverly, ravaged by deadly flooding last month, also received equipment donations from the organization.
While working primarily with youth and high school football programs, Corey also serves as the liaison or alumni players, manages community appearance requests for current and former players, and assists with various initiatives involving the military, education and non-profit communities. Corey also serves on the Board of Directors for Special Olympics Tennessee.
"I just had this sense of needing a new challenge, there's more that I can do," Corey, a former offensive lineman for the Florida Gators who previously served as head football coach and athletics director at Fletcher High School (Fla), said in an interview with tssaa.com. "I thought about getting into the community relations aspect of the NFL. This opportunity came open in community relations, and it checked all of my boxes of everything I needed as far as challenges and a chance to do something in the community."
The TSSAA said it "is proud to recognize Josh Corey for his numerous contributions to student-athletes and communities throughout Tennessee."
