Jeff Fuller has already proven his worth.

Without the benefit of a training camp, the lanky receiver was forced into action late last CFL season when the Calgary Stampeders receivers started dropping like flies.

The 6-foot-4, 223-pounder enjoyed a stellar four-game audition, piling up 15 catches for 254 yards — including a 113-yard effort against the Saskatchewan Roughriders in his second career start.

Because of his limited action, Fuller was able to attend rookie camp — and he has stood out, says Stamps GM/head coach John Hufnagel.

“Jeff looks good,” Hufnagel said. “He’s working hard and wants to get better as a football player.

“This is an important time for him, and he’s taking advantage of it.”

Stamps receivers coach Pete Costanza says the 24-year-old has the raw skills to be a standout in the league.

And the additional time he gets to spend with his coaches in the coming weeks could prove invaluable.
