Fulmore Looks Ahead To Busy Summer

P.J. Fulmore is coming off an explosive sophomore season where he rushed for 1,824 yards on offense for Pittsburgh (PA) North Catholic High School.

There's still plenty of time for 2015 athlete P.J. Fulmore to decide where he's going to school.

However, he's wasting little time in the offseason deciding about what position he play in the future, what he's looking to improve on this offseason, and what his immediate goals are for the coming season.

"I'm starting to run hills to get my speed up," Fulmore said. "I've started to work out, and I want to be 180 by the time the season starts. I'm a little over 170 right now."

What better area to run than Pittsburgh, home to several hills in the city alone. One of the more challenging ones is right in Fulmore's neighborhood--a climb up McArdle Roadway, to the top of Mount Washington.

"When I jog, I'll run up McArdle Roadway, but there's a lot of other hills closer to my house that I'll sprint up," Fulmore added.

Also part of his offseason, perhaps a new position. There's no question he'll be counted on to run the football at North Catholic. He is changing positions on defense; one he believes may be his ideal position at the next level.

"Last season, I did a lot of receiver in the offseason, and I played running back for my school," Fulmore said. "Now, I'm working at cornerback to get my corner skills up.

"I like (corner) a lot. I used to play safety, but they want me to move to cornerback because my skills would be good for the position. I'm starting to feel real comfortable."

As he continues his training for the upcoming season, his training also goes hand-in-hand getting ready for his camp schedule. Fulmore has already done a couple of combines this spring, including the Nike SPARQ combine. At the very least, he'll be able to measure his progress this summer at several camps.

"I'm going to Miami, Ohio State, Temple, Kent State, Toledo and West Virginia," Fulmore said. "I'm going to Pitt and Penn State, too.

"I got a lot of letters from schools. Northwestern came by my school, but they're not allowed to talk to me. They gave a letter to my coach, about their camp. Most letters I get are for camps."
