NFL star shares success story

October 5, 2004

Valdosta - Some South Georgia students are getting advice on success from an NFL star. |

Former Atlanta Falcons football player Jessie Tuggle shared his success story with students at Valdosta State University's business school Tuesday. The former VSU football standout told students if he can make it big, so can they.

"The biggest thing I want to get across to them is to let them know there's no substitute for hard work, set goals, believe in yourself and try to do the right things because in life the only thing we want is an opportunity," said Tuggle.

Tuggle earned a business degree from VSU in 1992. He played for the Falcons for 14 years before retiring.
