SotD Sitdown Series: David Fulcher

Arizona State has had a long line of excellent defensive backs over the years, and David Fulcher is among the very best of the best.

Initially a wide receiver, Fulcher would go on to become a hard-hitting and ball-hawking two-time consensus All-American safety. He'd then go to the NFL, earning Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors. He's been an active presence in the community, and earlier this year, he was named a member of the College Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2021, becoming the 13th Sun Devil to earn those honors.

On this episode, Fulcher and I discuss his illustrious Sun Devil career, what his enshrinement in the Hall of Fame means, his charitable work, his time with the Bengals, his views on Herm Edwards and the current Sun Devils, and much more.
