against previously unbeaten San Mar Fuller caught 10 passes for 181 yards and four Hes made a bunch of big plays for us through the Hill You have to look at the area championship game this year against San Marcos as one that sticks I thought our line and backs did a great job protecting from sometimes an eightman Once we picked everybody that put Cody in mantoman situations on the He had a careers worth of big plays in one In his threeyear career on the varsity Fuller racked up 150 He moved from quarterback to wide receiver after his freshman Fuller joins a Red Raider pro led by former New Braun fels quarterback Kliff completely devoted to using its receivers to win ball In their first season under head coach Mike the Red Raiders threw the ball 83 per cent of the time and led the nation in many passing cate Obviously if youre a receiver thats one of the places you want to That system will cater to a receivers They spread it out with four wideouts a Its perfect for I couldnt ask for anything Fuller Coach Leach is really a mas Hes a great guy to talk Scoreboard JESSIE Smithson Valleys Cody Fuller 7 looks for a hole to run through on a punt return in the area championship game against San Marcos at Blossom Stadium in San Fuller gave an oral committ ment to Texas Tech on to and as far as football goes it is incredible what he does with Fuller said he never had the chance to play with the former Unicorn quarterback but he looks forward to showing the people of the Big 12 Conference what a pair of Comal County standouts can do to the record Tm very excited about playing with Fuller I met him while I was up there and he said he had heard about me because I was from the He was a senior when I was a fresh man so we never played on the same Its going to be Hes a great Texas Tech graduated a num ber of its top including Tim Baker first in Big 12 with 69 catches and Derek Dorris second in Big 12 with nine TD Fuller said the coaches told him he has a great chance to play right away and might no have to redshirt his first Every newcomer is in the same boat when they show up in the In this era of with spread a lot of peoples answer to that on defense is to Hill Blitz forces you into a lot of mantoman situa A lot of in this day and you dont have the time nor the schemes to get people wide So the receivers who are in the most demand are the receivers whocan catchthe ball when theyre tightly covered with a lot of people around Ive always felt that was Codys He had good he ran good routes and he had good But I thought the best thing he did was just go up and get the ball and take it away from Coach Hill said he has a lot of talented young receivers ready to step in and try to sniff some of the school records Fuller has but it will be tough to replace him Weve been fortunate to have a lot of good players a lot of dif ferent positions through the Hill Every year we How are we going to replace this one or that oneYou really You just move on and realize your different strengths and weaknesses each Obviously well be a little hardpressed to replace a player of Codys We do have some good young receivers who we think are going to be good for us in Theyve got some big shoes to but we really dont want them to try We want them to be what they can be and well find ways to HYIensTop25 MENS COLLEGE BASKETBALL TOP 28 The top 25 teams In The
