Senior running back Kam Fuller was named to the All-Hoosier Hills Conference first-team, while teammate (and offensive lineman) Cameron McClure was named an Honorable Mention for their performances during the 2017 season.
Fuller was one of three running backs named to the first team. The senior finished the season with 1,188 yards on the ground, and added 15 receptions for 206 yards. His 15 touchdowns on the season led the team.
However Fuller’s season will be remembered for some of his record performances. In the season opener against Pulaski County (KY), Fuller tallied 294 all-purpose yards, which were the fourth-most in JHS football history. In the conference finale against Jennings County, Fuller bulldozed his way to 389 yards and four touchdowns, breaking the all-time record for most rushing yards in a game, which broke Jamie Goldsmith’s 2008 record of 327 yards.
Fuller’s record-breaking performance wouldn’t have been possible without senior Cameron McClure, who was the only other lone Red Devil to be named to the All-Conference team. The offensive lineman was named as an Honorable Mention after helping his running back eclipse the 1,000-mark on the season. McClure was also credited with a rushing touchdown during Jeffersonville’s 63-40 win over Jennings County.
Jeffersonville finished sixth in the conference, posting a 3-4 record for the season.
