Fuller’s shout-out: “Thanks to my family most importantly because they didn’t care where a tournament was, just that I made it there on time. During this hockey season I literally drug them all over the east coast from NITQs in Albany NY, to Festival in FL, to even practice 3 hours away in Philly. Thanks also to my high school coaches because without them I wouldn’t have been pushed to my absolute limit; to Coach Alex McMahan because of her belief in me and all of the opportunities she has given me to excel; to Coach Ainslie Rhoads for being such an amazing coach and an amazing role model; to Coach Ally Fuller and Coach Katie Brady for being amazing coaches; to God because it’s through Him that this is even possible.”
