DAYTON, Ore.– California is the hub of College football. The Four-Year Level and even at the two-year level.
The two-year level, as Dayton’s Kody Fuller will be playing at next year at the College of the Redwoods for football, got athlete’s that are Division-I caliber guys that are about a year or two away from reaching that level.
The Senior, who was second-team defensive back and special teamer as a Junior and received second-team All-League at receiver and defensive back, knows that it’ll be a challenge with those guys on the field for him to step up his game entering Fall Camp.
“I feel that I will become a better athlete and be able to compete with some of the guys at the college level. It’ll be a new experience but I will catch on,” said Fuller of the challenge. “Playing against some d1-caliber guys will be tough but I will have to get stronger and faster and work hard to compete.”
The Eureka, California team went 2-8 overall and 0-5 in the Pacific 7 Conference which saw conference winner Foothill play in the NCFC American Championship Bowl Game with Reedley this past November.
Fuller said he may try to dabble in basketball. He knows the challenges in that could bring in juggling two sports, but if he goes down that road Fuller believes he could find a way to get it done with the demands both sports will have at the college level.
“From that I believe that if I play basketball as well it will be a hard challenge to do both but if I manage my time right I think it is possible,” he said.
