GLASSBORO – Corey Clement can travel the country fighting to keep the Eagles on a path to repeat Super Bowl victory.
But Glassboro High — Corey Clements’ alma mater — is never far from the NFL running back’s heart, he told South Jersey students earlier this month.
Clement, an Eagle since 2017, graduated as a Glassboro Bulldog in 2013.
He started 2019 by presenting a check to the high school that kicked off his football career.
Clement presented a $5,000 check from the Super Bowl Honor Roll grant to the Glassboro High School Football Team and its coach Tim Hagerty on Jan. 4.
The check presentation was held in a private assembly in the high school’s auditorium, according to Glassboro School District officials.
“I’m fortunate to be able to give back. It’s a dream of mine,” Clement told the students.
The footballer attended the University of Wisconsin after graduating from Glassboro High School. He joined the Eagles as an undrafted rookie in 2017 and scored during the team’s Super Bowl LII win over the New England Patriots last year.
Glassboro High School received the grant through Clement’s participation in the NFL’s Super Bowl High School Honor Roll program. The school received the check and a golden football donning Clement’s name.
“I’m always back home with you,” Clement said. “The pride here in this town is never going to end.”
Last year, Glassboro Schools superintendent declared Feb. 8, a week after the Eagles’ Super Bowl win, as Corey Clement Day in the district.
