Before becoming a Bassmaster Elite angler in 2014, David Mullins taught history and coached basketball in East Tennessee. One of the players he coached, John Fulkerson (above), is playing an important role for the top ranked University of Tennessee Volunteers. Fulkerson is a 6 foot 9 inch sophomore and he’s typically the first big man off the bench for the Vols. This past Wed. in a win over South Carolina Fulkerson grabbed a rebound high above the rim and dramatically dunked the basketball. That play was an ESPN Sports Center highlight. “He always played with a lot of energy,” said Mullins. The same could be said for Mullins, who is currently leading the Toyota Bassmaster Elite on Lake Lanier.
