Adarius Fuller signs with LaGrange College to continue football career
Adarius Fuller

National Signing Day was celebrated at Piedmont Academy on Feb. 7. One of the signings recognized was Adarius Fuller’s when he penned his national letter of intent to LaGrange College. 

Fuller highlighted what made the day special for him. 

“It felt great signing Feb.7 and will be something I never forget — walking out and hearing everyone cheering for me and [my] family,” Fuller said. “It felt like all the hard work paid off.”

After Fuller graduates from Piedmont Academy in May, he will become a LaGrange Panther. 

He shared why signing with LaGrange College was the right fit.

“I felt LaGrange was the right choice for me because of the environment of the school and how much the coaching staff and facility workers showed they cared,” Fuller said. “The students seemed to enjoy being there and loved the school.”

Fuller plans to play defensive back and said he can play either cornerback or safety. He intends to major in business for sport management with career aspirations of being a sports agent to “stay in the sports world.”

Fuller recognized how he has developed as a player during his time at Piedmont Academy. 

“As a player I felt my growth at Piedmont grew because of Coach Wise pushing me and help[ing] fix the little things and helping me focus on one thing at a time,” Fuller said. “Also my teammate Keith [made] practice feel like game speed everyday when we used to go head-to-head.” 

Now, with the next chapter of his football career coming up in the fall, Fuller relayed his enthusiasm for playing at the next level. 

“What excites me most is being able to inspire the younger generation like I was inspired watching the college athletes in my area,” Fuller said. “Help the game of football grow as a whole and be the reason why someone fell in love with the game.”
