What They Are Saying About Jemalle Cornelius

“Jemalle Cornelius, just happens to be captain. (Applause) Here's what he said. He said, ‘If everyone took a small leadership role in whatever it is they do, we can help eliminate some of the problems that are in our society.’ I love the spirit. (Applause.) I love the fact that champions understand you've got to be a champ on the field, as well as a champ off the field. And I believe one of the reasons this program is successful is because not only you're good football players, but you're good people.” (3/19/07)
President George W. Bush, 43rd president of the United States

“It feels good to finally get an SEC Championship. This is why you come to the University of Florida. We had a rough couple of years, but coach (Urban) Meyer and his staff came in here and picked us up and showed us how to win. I’m feeling real good right now.” (12/2/06)
Jemalle Cornelius

“It feels good to finally get an SEC Championship. This is the greatest day of my life.” (12/2/06)
Jemalle Cornelius

"He's not a vocal type like you would say I am, but he's a leader that you can step to and talk to you in private. He is an inspiration because he does everything the right way. I guess that's the kind of leader he is.  When he says something, you know it's probably in stone." (11/01/06)
Brandon Siler, UF Linebacker

"He just does everything for me. He makes play after play, especially when you need a play to be made.
He's a very disciplined football player. He's a guy that you need to continually try to get the ball to." (11/01/06)
Urban Meyer, UF Head Coach

"I don't think there's anybody that can adjust to the ball better than him. As far as coming up with the catch, he's pretty acrobatic and at the same time he's not going to let a lot of things hit the ground." (11/01/06)
Tate Casey, UF Tight End

"We rotate captains each week, but he's the one consistent guy. He's out there, he does the talking. He's my guy. The other guys that are out there, they're hood ornaments. They go out there and wave to the crowd so their mom and dad can take pictures of them. But Jemalle Cornelius is the captain of this football team. ... I trust him. He has earned that right." (11/01/06)
Urban Meyer, UF Head Coach

"Working with young people and helping them in life, that's something that I think about often. My father
(Clinton Cornelius) is a pastor so I got to see that. My best friend right now is a children's pastor and he and I talk a lot, so I can definitely see myself going into that arena. I'm not a perfect citizen. I just try to be as good a citizen as I can." (11/01/06)
Jemalle Cornelius

"It means a lot. It's an honor to be dubbed the captain. It's good knowing the head coach thinks highly of you...I just try to spend a lot of time with a lot of players that need help in areas of their lives or whatever. Anybody that needs something, I pretty much go in and kind of mediate between them and the coaches and make sure all the young guys are getting taken care of. I'm not a perfect citizen, I try to be as good a citizen as I can." (10/19/06)
Jemalle Cornelius

"He's an inspiration because he does everything the right way," (10/12/06)
Brandon Siler, UF Linebacker

“That's my boy. It's like saying Nate Meyer didn't grade a champion. I hope Nate turns out to be like him because Jemalle is a special guy. He's a player." (10/9/06)
Urban Meyer, UF Head Coach

"He's the best. He's Vernell Brown. That's my two guys. They do everything you ask on and off the field. You have no idea what I ask that guy to do. I don't have time to tell you. He does everything I ask. I hope Nate turns out to be like him because Jemalle is a special, special guy. He's a player." (10/9/06)
Urban Meyer, UF Head Coach

“Urban Meyer identified him in September as the team’s MVP and later as the team’s true captain. ‘Jemalle Corenlius,’ the coach said Monday. ‘He’s my boy.’” (10/9/06)
Dave Curtis, Orlando Sentinel 

“Redshirt freshman receiver Jemalle Cornelius is rapidly emerging as a play-maker this preseason, as a receiver and a punt blocker.  Cornelius blocked three punts in a recent practice and is giving all the punters a headache with his speed rush from the outside.  At receiver, he’s also making great strides and is getting more and more passes coming his way.  He has the speed and quickness to stretch the defense, and he’s also got very good hands.”  (August 13, 2003)
Robbie Andreu, Gainesville Sun

“Cornelius reminds me of Jacquez Green.  He’s a smallish guy who can burn you.” (August 14, 2002)

"Jemalle has made exceptional progress. He has ability and is quietly making it known what he is capable of doing." (August 15, 2003)
Dwayne Dixon, Former UF Assistant Coach

"He's the reason we went back to the state title game this year.  We lost our cornerback from the year before, and he had to switch positions because we didn't have anybody else.  In the state title game we put him on their best receiver.  The first time they threw it to him, Jemalle picked it off.  The second time they threw it to him, Jemalle broke it up.  They didn't throw to him after that." (Summer 2002)
Mike Hayde, Fort Meade HS Head Coach

"I don't mean to be sacrilegious,  but he is such a good kid in addition to being a remarkable athlete that it's like having Jesus wearing Nikes for you."  (Preseason 2002)
Brian McCrae, Fort Meade HS Offensive Coordinator

"He's beginning to emerge at wide receiver.  He's a guy who is fast and can run.  He reminded me of (former UF cornerback and special teams standout) Fred Weary the way he took that ball and ran." (April 6, 2003)
Ron Zook, Former UF Head Coach

“At halftime, if Chad Jackson, or Dallas Baker, or Andre Caldwell or Jemalle Cornelius, if they haven’t touched the ball, he won’t be pleased with my performance and I’ll have to come up with some adjustments to get them the ball. It’s exciting to have that option.” (8/21/2005)
Dan Mullen, UF Offensive Coordinator

“Dallas (Baker) played very well as did Jemalle Cornelius. I’ve had a lot of questions about if I was surprised by Jemalle’s play, and I am not surprised at all by him. I love Jemalle as a representative of this University and if you are a graduate of UF then you should love Jemalle. He’s all about Florida football, and he played terrific.” (9/28/05)
Urban Meyer, UF Head Coach

“We lost Chad, so everybody needs to step up. That’s what I’m trying to do. I’m just working hard and pretty much getting ready when they give me the opportunity.” (July 2006)
