Best Metro State College Athlete - 2001
Rashawn Fulcher Roadrunners Men's Basketball
When the Metropolitan State Roadrunners won the NCAA Division II basketball title last spring, they were loaded with senior talent. This season, the senior star is power forward Rashawn Fulcher, a 6'2", 220-pound bruiser who looks more like an inside linebacker than a hoopster. Dubbed "Buff" by teammates in awe of his physique, the Oakland, California, native has led the team with fourteen points per game and shot an impressive 51 percent from the field. Throw in 31 steals and 30 assists, and you've got the entire package. Recently named to the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference all-league team, he led the Roadrunners to post-season play again this year.
