About David Fulcher
David Fulcher was born and raised in Los Angeles, California and received both football and baseball scholarships to Arizona State University. During his career at Arizona State, he began as a Wide Receiver, then after requesting a shift to Defensive Back, he earned the coveted award of Standout Player at that position.
David's nickname, "Fo-Rock" was placed on him by his teammates after their game with Colorado State, where his teammates said he hit one player, "like a rock!" The nickname obviously stuck and stayed with him even to this day. While at Arizona State, David won All American honors three consecutive years. In November of 1996, he received the honor of being inducted into the Arizona State University Hall of Fame for his outstanding college career.
David was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in 1986 in the third round and went on to become known as one of the NFL's largest, fastest, hardest hitting, and best Strong Safeties during his career. He was named to three consecutive Pro Bowl Games ('89, '90, and '91), made All-Pro teams in 1988, '89, and '90. In the Bengal's 1989 Superbowl year, he was named Defensive Back of the Year for the NFL - an outstanding, well-earned honor after a storybook season for the team.
David Fulcher led the Cincinnati Bengals in tackles in 1991 with 95 - 68 of those tackles were solo. He led his team with 4 pass interceptions and 4 fumble recoveries. In David's six seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, he accounted for 561 tackles - 388 solo and 173 assists, 27 pass interceptions (two of which were returned for touchdowns), and 10 fumble recoveries.
He is now retired and lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with his wife Judy, their daughter Kayla and son David, both who are talented athletes. During David's career, he devoted many hours to charitable events/appearances. He remains as active as ever in charitable activities and is a strong advocate for the education and guidance of today's youth. He started the first All Pro Football Camp in the year 2000 to hit Cincinnati and continues to raise money to help those affected by multiple sclerosis. During the NFL season, David remains active in football, working for the NFL in close relationship to the Cincinnati Bengals, as well as being the Head Varsity Football Coach at Cincinnati Christian School in Fairfield Township, OH. In June, 2010, David formed at non-profit corporation called MANA-Now, Inc. which stands for Mentoring Against Negative Actions (MANA-NOW.COM). He works with incarcerated males at the Hamilton County Justice Center to teach them "life skills" so that when they are released, they can live productive lives in their communities as well as with their families.
