Tennesee football: Former walk-on delivers emotional press conference ahead of Senior Day
"I am going to declare for the NFL draft this year."
"I've waited five years to say that," continued former walk-on Charles Folger during his portion of the Tennessee Volunteers' Senior press conference, "You have no idea how excited I am."
This, of course, was a joke. In Folger's five years in Knoxville, he's only taken the field three times, and he's only got one tackle to his name.
But, the fifth-year senior relished his time in orange as was extremely apparent during his first media appearance as a Volunteer.
He was all smiles and pride as he spoke highly of the dedication and fight of walk-ons and "non-travel guys," about what it meant to him to be a part of the team and how he would "cry like a baby" during his final Vol Walk this Saturday.
If anything, Folger's press conference proved that football, as the old cliché says, is more than just a game.
