Courtney Jolly, a Former Monster Truck Driver & Beauty Queen, is Probably Florida Gulf Coast University's Most Famous Alumna

Florida Gulf Coast University takes on San Diego State University in the round of 32 this evening for a chance to make the Sweet 16. FGCU is a win away from being the official Cinderella of this year’s edition of March Madness. That┬ámeans┬áthat coach Andy Enfield, forwards Eddie Murray & Chase Fieler and guard Sherwood Brown have already moved into FGCU’s Hall of Fame along with White Sox pitcher Chris Sale and former monster truck driver Courtney Jolly.

Jolly, a 26-year old Naples, Florida native, started driving monster trucks professionally while attending FGCU. Jolly earned a degree in marketing while racing on the weekends and attending classes Monday through Wednesday. These days, Jolly has hung up her monster truck keys to sell real estate in Naples. Jolly is a former Swamp Buggy Queen.
