Ohio State senior safety Jordan Fuller was named Tuesday as one of 137 nominees for the American Football Coaches Association's Good Works Team, which honors college football players for the impact they make off the field.
A returning captain, Fuller is entering his third year as a starting safety for the Buckeyes on the field but has also been a star off the field, earning Academic All-American honors for each of the past two years. Fuller worked as a sports law intern with Columbus-based Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP this summer, and is part of two student-athlete organizations on campus: The Buckeye Way, which held a forum in April to educate Ohio State student-athletes on sexual assault, and Redefining Athletic Standards, an organization for black male student-athletes founded by Ohio State wide receiver Austin Mack.
Fuller is expected to be one of the Buckeyes' top leaders both on and off the field this fall, and is one of three Ohio State players – along with fellow seniors Jonathon Cooper and K.J. Hill – who will represent the Buckeyes at Big Ten Media Days on Thursday.
