“I never thought my names would be on their Instagrams or social media at all,” the Vanderbilt University senior said.
“I just had a few days to learn how to do this,” Fuller said. “At first, there wasn’t a lot of pressure … I was just proud I was able to step out there and do that and represent female athletes.”
Fuller — who wore the message “Play Like a Girl” on the back of her helmet — did want to make it clear to young women that there are a lot of “ups and downs” on the path to success.
“So, you just need to be determined in what you’re doing and just be passionate about it,” she told Cooper. “If it’s something you really want to accomplish, don’t let those down moments and barriers hold you back from what you want to achieve.”
Vanderbilt heads south Saturday to play the University of Georgia.
“We’ve been practicing and training for the game on Saturday,” Fuller said.
