BLACKSBURG - Virginia Tech senior cornerback Kyle Fuller has been named a second-team All-American by Walter Camp, as released Thursday night. The Baltimore, Md., native also earned first-team All-ACC honors this year from the coaches. Fuller played in just nine games, making eight starts, and had 24 tackles, two interceptions and 10 breakups in his final season. He missed the final two games after undergoing surgery on a core muscle on Nov. 19.
“I would like to thank God first and foremost, because without him, none of this would be possible,” Fuller said. “It’s an honor to be selected for this achievement and I am very thankful.”
By making one of the five nationally recognized All-America squads (AP, Walter Camp, Sporting News, FWAA, AFCA), Fuller becomes the eighth Tech cornerback to earn All-America honors to accomplish that feat. Other Hokie cornerbacks to be recognized were: Jayron Hosley (2010, So.), Victor “Macho” Harris (2008, Sr.), Brandon Flowers (2006, r-So.; 2007, r-Jr.), Jimmy Williams (2005, Sr.), DeAngelo Hall (2003, Jr.), Ronyell Whitaker (2001, r-Sr.) and Anthony Midget (1999, Sr.).
Fuller is one of 13 ACC players recognized as first- or second-team All-Americans by the group.
