Playmaker returns, Childress suspended
HUNTSVILLE, AL - Tennessee Valley Vipers head coach, Chris Williams, announced today that the team has been assigned former Viper Andy "Playmaker" Fuller.
"I just got the bug to come back and play after coming to the first game and listening to the road games on the radio," Fuller said. "I just want to come in and be a piece to the puzzle and help this team anyway I can."
Fuller played in 73 games for the Vipers from 2000-2004. He caught 54 passes for 573 yards and 28 touchdowns from the tight end position. On defense, he recorded 95.0 tackles, 14.5 tackles-for-loss of 53 yards, 15.5 sacks for 88 yards, two interceptions, eight pass break ups, nine forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries. He ranks third in Vipers history in sacks and second in forced fumbles.
"Andy brings much-needed leadership and experience to our young football team," Williams said. "At age 31 he is still a fairly young guy who has the ability to play at a high level for many years to come."
The af2 has also suspended OL/DL Ahmad Childress for four games for an altercation with a fan in Memphis last weekend. He has played in two games and recorded 4.5 tackles and two fumble recoveries.
