Hey, My name is Corey Waldon. I am currently a senior here at the University of South Alabama. I have been apart of the Jaguar football team since the beginning in 2009. I was born in columbus Mississippi but was raised in tuscaloosa alabama the home of the TIDE. I am the youngest out of four boys in my family and I am the only person in my family to graduate high school and attend college. I was raised in a single parent home and my brothers taught me a lot of things I hold dear to my heart. Football is what brought me to the University. After playing high school sports I earned a full scholarship to play football.
I entered the field of education because I believe that education is important to every human. I believe that a positive teacher can influence a student and encourage them to do better things with their life, while also challenging them. I had a few teachers throughout my educational journey that really help me make my decision in going into education. Some of my passions are: working with the youth, coaching football, and motivating people to go get what they want in life. I am a hard worker and believe in the value of success. I love my family they mean the world to me and I am a christian man.
