ATH Fuller comes up big in playoffs

In two weeks Old Tappan will take on Wayne Hills in the New Jersey in the state championship game for Section 3, and while that promises to be an exciting showdown it will be difficult to top Old Tappan's semifinal against Paramus.

On Friday night Old Tappan defeated Paramus 63-56 in a high scoring affair that was often a track meet.

Athlete Devin Fuller, who plays quarterback for Old Tappan, was undoubtedly the star of the game.

"It was touchdown for touchdown until there was a minute left in the game," Fuller recalled. "It was a great game."

On the night Fuller said he rushed for 404 yards and passed for another 110, totaling six touchdowns on the ground and one through the air.

Colleges had already been taking notice of Fuller before Friday evening's breakout performance, so the interest from coaches is only going to increase. Most schools have been recruiting him as an athlete, telling him they will have a better idea of where he will fit in their system as it gets closer to his freshman season of college.

Fuller has had an offer from Rutgers for a while and he recently picked up an offer from Boston College.

"Yeah, I got that last Friday," he said over the weekend. "They were in contact with me but it was definitely a surprise because they weren't talking about offering, so it was a good surprise. I went up there during my freshman year for a camp and I was there all three days. I learned about some of the things that go on there. It seems like a good place."

Fuller said Notre Dame, Penn State, Georgia Tech and UConn are all very interested in him as well, though he isn't sure whether they are close to offering him.
