Brooks Fuller: Auburn has always been special to me. I grew up an Auburn fan and my family all went here, so signing with the program was a dream come true.
AT: What is your favorite thing about baseball?
BF: My favorite thing about baseball is the relationship and competition that come with the sport. You become close with each teammate and learn how to compete and deal with failure more than any sport.
AT: What can you say about the Auburn coaching staff?
BF: The Auburn coaches are some of the best people around. They are a big reason why I chose Auburn. Coach Thompson is great to talk to and gain knowledge from. He's seen just about all there is to see in college baseball and knows the ups and downs that come with the sport. I'm looking forward to getting coached up by him and the rest of his staff.
