Ryan Fuller graduated from Corning East High School in 1994 and was a member of the Trojans baseball program for four years. As a senior he was the recipient of the Rossettie Award as the top baseball player at East High. Ryan helped set the stage for the East High 1995 State championship team with his leadership skills in his last two years of high school. After graduation, Ryan attended Monroe Community College where he was named to the All-Northeastern Team as a freshman. After graduating from MCC in 1996, he then moved on to St. Andrew College in NC where he earned is Bachelor’s degree in 1998. He was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in both 1994 and 1995. But the dream to play professional ball was destroyed by an arm injury while pitching in college. During the summers of his late high school and early college years, Ryan was a key member of the Corning American Legion team, winning 18 games while losing only three and carving out an ERA of just a little over one run per game. His Hall of Fame coach Bill Steele called him one of the best big game pitchers he’s ever had. Ryan is currently living in Austin, Texas and works with the media relations teams for the University of Texas football games.
