Tore his ACL and could miss the start of the 2013 season. Looks like Kendall Fuller will have an opportunity for early playing time.

“Southern football is why my grandmother spent fall Saturday’s in orange capris, blue reebok classics and alligator jewelry and had a football card of Danny Wuerffel taped to her dresser. It’s the same reason why my mom can’t watch the fourth quarter, my dad won’t watch the first quarter and my uncle and his two sons have walked around Valdosta, Georgia with a little more pep in their step since December 7th, 2002.”

He is a class act.  He has a good work ethic.  I hope he can recover soon. 


Can someone explain to me why the ACL is such a vulnerable part of the body? Is it because of an unbalanced strength training program?

when i was in college one of my classmates did a report on knee injuries, and i thought one of the interesting pieces was in female athletics its much more common to damage your LCL and MCL because of the shape of the hips.

Very well could be an all Fuller brother cornerback position for the Hokies this fall.

Tough break for this young man.

Very possible.  Other possibilities include Donaldven Manning at CB or dropping Deitrick Bonner down from FS to CB.
