Fuller to Play in Tonight’s Crab Bowl

Kyle Fuller returned to the gridiron this week for the first time since the third game of Mount St. Joseph’s (Baltimore, MD) 2009 season. The 6-0, 165-pound cornerback was selected to play for the Baltimore squad in the Maryland Crab Bowl, which is scheduled to take place this evening. Fuller is happy to be back on the field for one final time on the high school level.

“I’ve been able to practice all week,” said Fuller, who continues to recover from a torn finger ligament suffered in the third game of his senior season. “It felt good to get back out there. I was rusty the first couple of days, but I did better the last couple of practices. As the week went on, I got better. It’s real nice to get out there and play with nice athletes and show what I can do with those guys.”

Fuller will play cornerback and perhaps return kicks and/or punts on special teams. The finger, which Fuller estimates to be at about 70-percent health, has not been a problem in practice.

“I think I’ve done pretty good, especially since I’m coming back from the injury. I just make sure I tape it up,” Fuller said. “I’m just going to keep working hard. So far, the finger has been pretty good. At first I would just try to bat passes away in practice, but I’ve started to catch things now.”
